If you're running a third party firewall on Vista, or using the built in firewall, it may be blocking communication with the ethernet disk if you haven't defined a LAN segment or range of IP addresses where all traffic is allowed.   You also need to make sure the VIsta PC is in the same workgroup as the XP PC and the LACie drive, or the LaCie drive will not accept the credentials as coming from a different workgroup.
