      Are the two machines in the same workgroup? The same domain? The same subnet? (Obvious stuff, I know, but it never hurts to check)

      Have you tried sharing the drive explicitly instead of using the hidden share “c$”? (Open Windows Explorer, click on the drive, select File | Properties | Sharing)

      Also, in my experience, “c$” will not map if the account you are using on the WinXP machine does not have admin rights on the Win2K PC.
