I've got Vista ultimate installed on one computer and XP SP2 on the other.
They're connect via cross-over cable with the Vista comp also connected to
They can "see" each other but register each other as "unidentified network".
They've both got the same workgroup and correct ethernet drivers installed.
I've enabled internet connection sharing on the Vista comp but the XP keeps

Setting between private and public networks on Vista
Gone through countless "diagnose and repairs" and network wizards
