On a windows XP computer, the shared folder, which
is of course shared under the properties dialogue, refuses
to let me uncheck the read only attribute.

any ideas?

The attributes fro the Shared Documents Folder can't be changed.
Anyways, it is read-only for other users, the current user can write to it.
If u want to give read/write access to other users, create ur own shared folder or share another folder.

The folder has been shared out as read only,
Go to the properties of the folder and choose Shaing and Security
Make sue that the users are listed as having read / write access and not just read

What does this mean? "To share this folder with other users of this computer, drag it to the shared documents folder."

That is what I found on the properties of my C drive. If I do that, will it stop that drive from being read only? I do have a router. Will the other people be able to get to it?
