as for the service packs, yes, have installed all windows updates, have gone to 6 or 7 websites listing xp networking solutions. so far, no luck. this site was suggested to me, so i figured i'd try it out. maybe there is no solution other then removing microsoft from the planet. what's with releasing bugged software?

First things first..
One network, two computers...
XP home--cannot see XP pro
XP Pro--CAN see XP home
First, is file and print sharing on for both computers ?
Does XP Pro have USE SIMPLE FILE SHARING checked
Open MY COMPUTER, TOOLS > FOLDER OPTIONS > VIEW, scroll down to the bottom and check USE SIMPLE FILE SHARING

The hardware firewall is irrelevent if you have it set up correctly regarding the two OSs not seeing each other since the firewall is between both computers and the Internet, and not between the two computers.
Are you near these computers now or not?
If so, please check that Xp Pro is set as directed (both machines are set to simply file sharing.
Also, Create a folder on each machine. On Xp Pro, called it SHAREPRO, right click it and share the folder. On Xp Home, called it SHAREHOME, right click it and share the folder.
Then, right click on MY COMPUTER on both computers. Choose COMPUTER NAME, hit the change button.
On Xp Pro, change the name to XPproPC, change the WORKGROUP to TEST, hit apply and reboot
On Xp Home, change the name to XPhomePC, change the WORKGROUP to TEST, hit apply and reboot
This is so we are starting from a known position.
Do you see each other?
