This following might help with File Sharing.
Successful Sharing involves some general consideration in Network settings,
As well as specific adjustment of each computer according to what is allowed
to be shared.
Basic XP -
Advanced XP - http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;304040
Vista - http://www.microsoft.com/technet/network/evaluate/vista_fp.mspx>
Printer Sharing XP -
Firewall setting for Sharing XP - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/875357
As for Vista printing, make sure that your printer has drivers for Vista,
and than install them through the Control Panel Printers Ad printer network.
