Well, the problem is resolved. I'm not exactly sure how. There was a McAfee
Personal Firewall that was active on the Vista computer that I wasn't aware
of. After disabling that, it saw the XP computer in the Network/Workgroup
Computers list and the XP computer could see the Vista computer.
However, the odd thing is, I re-enabled the McAfee Personal Firewall
afterwards and the network is still running fine. So I'm not sure if that
actually was the issue. But it's working now anyways....
