Sharing files and folders in a workgroup setting is a real PITA for me. You must use the Shared Documents folders in XP and you must use the Public Folders in Vista. Both computers have to have file and printer sharing enabled. This sort of file sharing uses the Guest account permissions, so if the Guest account doesn't have permission for what you want to do - you're up the creek without a paddle.
One way around this is by "mirroring" accounts. That is having the exact same account on each system (Administrator or limited user, exact same user name and exact same password). This simplifies things enormously - but it's just a kludge workaround to the limitations of file sharing.
