I have 2 computers, the host running XP Pro and the other running XP Home. I'm trying to set it up so that I can access files on both computers. The 2nd computer accesses the internet thru a wireless connection. I've spent hours running the wizards but nothing works. Guess I need step by step instructions.

Make sure File and Printer Sharing is enabled on both computers. Set up a network share on both pc then map a network drive to the shared folders.
