    what is windows version of the computer with C folder? if windows 98, should have no problem, just read/read write permission password

    if it's win XP, by default administrator is not allowed to login, with blank password, from remote computer

    you have to mount a remote directory with smbfs... IE:

    mount -t smbfs -o username=adminaccount //dadcomp/c$

    then will ask you for a password.. if none i would assume just press enter.. never done it without a password tho. if you want this to happen automatically you have to add an /etc/fstab entry.
