Connect to Win2k file sharing from Win 7

I got trouble of connecting to the shared folder from Win2k recently from my laptop, Win7. I found this guide below on how to successfully connect to the server.

Click the start button and type secpol.msc in the search function.
Browse to "Local Policies" -> "Security Options".  Now look for the entry "Network Security: LAN Manager authentication level" and open it.  Click on the dropdown menu and select "Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated".  Apply the settings.
