Windows 7 / XP on home network : how to share files?

maximejacquet
I replaced an XP PC by a Windows7one on a home network and cannot manage to share files between these PCs.
How does one configure Xp and windows7 to share files on a home network?

Thanks for your help.

The link you provided was very helpful : I managed to make it work. As the W7 interface is a bit different from the Vista one, I had to adapt slightly. Note that as W7 has "libraries" the Pictures directory is not treated in the same manner as under XP (do not quite understand yet but managed to access it anyway).
