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.

Take a look at this article from microsoft.  See the references area for the rest of the parts.  This should give you complete 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.
