Are you running a firewall on the PC that you can't ping? (If you are running XP SP2 then the windows firewall will be on by default after a fresh install)

If so, try turning this off to see if that will allow you to ping it from other PCs.

sounds like Windows firewall is enabled. It will block ICMP requests (pings). You can either allow ICMP requests or disable the firewall to see if that is the solution.
