are you using a router?
you need to make sure of the following PROVIDING both machines are winxp
1.they are on the same workgroup - right click on my compute>properties>computer name
2.they are within the same ip range -ex 192.168.1.5 and 192.168.1.6
3.they both have folders that are marked as shared >right click>properties>sharing
4.you have no firewalls blocking access to file sharing -start>settings>control panel>firewall -also check out if you have NIS or another 3rd party firewall
try this first if you wanna do it manually.
let me know how you make out
