Make sure they are in the same workgroup and/or domain. If workgroup, make
sure you have the exact same userID/password account created on both
computers.

Can you ping the other computer? Is either running a firewall? Is it
configured correctly?
Open a command prompt and type >start \\someName What error code is
returned?

(It is not necessary that the computers be in the same workgroup.)

Try pinging the other PC - if that works then use the IP addy to map the
drive
