RE: home networking & roaming profiles`
You will need a Windows Domain Server to enable Roaming Profile.
For the current Need, you can share a folder is One Vista Machine. Map the
shared folder in both the machine as X or Y drive. You can now keep the
shared documents in that map drive.
For this to work, you should create same userid and password in both the
systems otherwise you might need to enter password everytime.
Firewall setting also might need to be changed to work this way.
