I have a desktop running XP and a wireless laptop I would like to

Since you haven't told us what you've already done, I can't address
that. Review the information at this link:

File/Printer Sharing Vista -
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/net.../vista_fp.mspx

A few key things to check:

1. As always, make sure you only have one firewall running on each
machine and that it is properly configured to allow the LAN as trusted.

2. Make sure you've told Vista this is a private network.
