I haven't spent much time on it and I may have simply missed something, only way I could get Vista to access other computers running XP was to turn off "UAC" (User account control) off.
If you want to turn it off but not sure where/how,
Start> control panel> User account> "Turn User account control on or off" Click on that phrase and it will give the option to turn it off.
Keep in mind that was only for a "one way" file share, Vista accessing XP but not the other way around. Once I had set up vista to file share too I was able to turn UAC back on, only did so as a test then turned it back off again. UAC drives me to the nut house.
Vista is a little more involved to set up to file share then XP is, if you're not sure how and you'd like to know the steps just let us know.
