Go to Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center\Advanced sharing settings and under the "home" profile, enable/disable the obvious. Disable password protected sharing.
A "Homegroup" will be created by default, but if you're not using the library stuff then disable it. Leave "allow Windows to manage Homegroup connections" on.
This will share the "public" folder as well as any folder you manually set as shared, on every PC across your LAN, as long as they are in the same "workgroup", accessible under "Network" in the left pane.
You'll also be able to access the public folder of a Mac (if it has the appropriate filesharing settings enabled) from there.
