Never had the problem

Well since you havent stated the exact error you are having.

It can be that you don't have the guest account enabled. You may a firewall preventing access. You dont have the computers on the same workgroup. And if you are sharing with a box that is 98 or ME you may have to create the exact same user(s) account on the xp box.

I don't have a problem at all on my domain. if your trying to do a "workgroup" type, firewalls will prevent one another from seeing each other. If you haven't shared anything then you aren't going to see anything in network places when you expand the workgroup.
