    On the WinXP computers, create local user account(s), with non-blank
    password(s), that have the desired access privileges to the desired
    shares. Log on to the other PCs using those account(s), and you will be
    able to access the designated shares, provided your network is
    configured properly. Also, if running WinXP SP1 or later, make sure
    that WinXP's built-in firewall is disabled on the internal LAN
    connection. If using WinXP SP2, make sure that you've either disabled
    the built-in firewall, or set the firewall to allow file and print sharing.

    Usually, WinXP's Networking Wizard makes it simple and painless --
    almost entirely automatic, in fact. There's a lot of useful,
    easy-to-follow information in WinXP's Help & Support files, and here:
