I think I have the solution. When you go to Control Panel set it to Classic View  and click on Network and Sharing Center. When you have got there open up Network Discovery and turn it on.

You don't need to go into classic view, but you do need to enable network discovery also see http://www.microsoft.com/technet/network/evaluate/vista_fp.mspx for other tips regarding xp/vista networking.
