RE: Sharing Files and Printer between a PC with Vista and a PC with XP
As well as Gloria's link, make sure in Vista's Network and sharing::
1 Network Discovery: ON
2 File sharing:ON
3 Password protect: OFF
4 Public Folder Sharing: ON
5 Network set to Private

Workgroup names the same on ALL comps
The Public in Vista is the same as Shared Docs in XP
