i have a 2 computer, home network. It works fine for FILE SHARING from the old computer to the new (which is named HomePC), but when i try to look at HomePC from the old i am having problems

The new computer is obviously not set up right, but i can't find what i've got wrong.  I can see HomePC when i go to MY Network Places->Entire Network->Microsoft Windows Network->Mshome  (which is my homenetwork name),  but if i try to click on it, i get this error message:
 "Connect to HomePC  Please enter the password",but there is no password to supply.

So what am I doing wrong?

Both computers have XP Pro
