Note down the names of the computers from Control Panel, System.

Disable firewalls on both.

Enable file sharing on relevant folders (right click in My Computer).

Restart both.

Go to My Network Places in My Computer select Add A Network Place, follow the networking wizard, making sure you supply exactly the right Computer Name(s).

Also see Search, Computers or People.

It's a slightly hit and miss business in XP in my experience and takes a little patience
but in later versions of Windows probably simpler.
