Perhaps something here will help...

Disable all firewalls for testing.  This includes Zone Alarm, Norton Internet Security, etc.
   Including XP's ICF...
   From Control Panel, open Network Connections.
   Right-click Local Area Network from Control Panel's Network Connections and choose Properties
   Click the Advanced tab and deselect (remove the checkbox from) "Protect my computer..."
   Click OK and close out of Network Connections & Control Panel

Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP:
   XP utilizes DNS for communication by default.  To enable the systems to communicate via NetBIOS,
   proceed as above to enter Network Connections.
   Right-click your Local Area Connection and click Properties
   Scroll down in "This connection uses the following items:" to find Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
   Select it (highlight it) and click properties
   Click the Advanced button on the General tab.
   Click the WINS tab.
   Under NetBIOS setting heading
    Click Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP
   Click OK, OK, OK and close out of Network Connections & Control Panel

Disable Simple File Sharing:
   Right-click the Start button and click Explore
   Click Tools then Click Folder Options
   Click the View tab
   At the bottom of the Advanced Settings list, deselect (remove the checkbox from):
    "Use simple file sharing (Recommended)"
   Click OK

Let Everyone's permissions apply to anonymous users as well:
    Click Start
    Click Run
    In the Open box type SECPOL.MSC /S <ENTER>
    Navigate to Local Policies/Security Options.
    Double click "Network Access:Let Everyone permissions apply to anonymous users"
    Click Enabled and click OK

Test your connectivity:
   Click Start
   Click Run
   In the Open box that appears, type CMD <ENTER>
   At the prompt that appears, type IPCONFIG <ENTER>
   Do you have an IP address listed (192.168.1.100)?
   If so, try pinging the other machines by IP address:
     PING 192.168.1.100
   If you get a Reply successful, then try connecting to them...
     NET USE * \\192.168.1.1001\C$ /USER:192.168.1.100\Administrator Password
   (where Administrator is an administrative account on the machine you're trying to get to)
   (and where Password is the appropriate password for that account).

It also helps if you have the same user account with the same password on both machines...
