Set them to the same workgroup.

To do this if you don't know already:

Right-click My Computer on the desktop/Start Menu, choose Properties -> Computer Name -> Change.

Reboot.

Now you should be able to see both computers appear in My Network Places on both systmes.

Oh yeah, and then right-click the files you want to share, choose Sharing and Security and go from there.
