to share a directory:


right click my network places, click on the lan, make sure file sharing is turned on.


then you should be able to right click, and click on sharing, and share as you like.  

I don't know how well going across the PC/MAC bridge will fly.

In winxp it is really easy.  right-click on a folder and there is an option called "sharing and security".  when you select that it will have a window with something like ("enable sharing on the folder" clicking that will some up with a wizard, or you can click the button that say's "I know the risks and I want to enable file sharing"

it should pretty much walk you through it, but if you are new to computers, I wouldn't recommend PC to Mac as your first attemp at sharing.  PC to PC is enough of a challenge for a beginner.

Tried to provide an answer ot your other question re: network connectivity XP to MAC, but I'm new ot this exchange, and didn; tsee a way to answer (perhaps it wass closed)
Microsft put out an RDP client for MAC (Remote desktop protocol) for MAC (10.2 & >). so you can take over an XP desktop. not sure about dropping files between the 2, I would test ti but my MAC is down.....down.....
Check the Microsoft site for RDP & MAC
