Must have file sharing enabled...

In order for the system to show up on the network, it must be capable of sharing resources to the network. As such, you need to add the File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks component to the list in the Local Area Connection Properties dialog box.

firewall

The most common I have seen is the firewall is blocking this. Whether the MS or zonealarm or what ever. Check that.

Is it set to the same domain?

Is it set to the same work group?

Can it see other systems?

NIC might be bad.
