Name both computers to the same workgroup.
Give seperate names to each PC
Reboot
Create identical usernames on both machines, same password
Create a shared directory on each machine, and allow full rights to that user.

Right click on "my network places" then search for the other machine. Now create a shortcut link to the shared directory on your desktop. You can also share printers on each other machines. On the computer connected to the printer, right click on it and click share.
