I have also experience this scenario wherein winXP computers hardly connect with winVista even though in winVista, all levels of sharing are checked.
But I've tried making my winXP as the center of my network wherein printers are installed there, and it work.
Honestly speaking, winVista is not a complete replica of winXP. Hence, in win7, winXP and winVista are merged.
Features of both OS are related to each other. But I won't advice to install a win7 yet it is not in market.
What could I suggest is making your winXP as the center of your network.
When a winVista computer connects to a winXP, minimum malfunctions occur, yet the connection runs smoothly.
I'm still going to experiment some solutions on this matter.
