Greetings.. I am unsucessfully trying to set up my home network with both computers running XP.

Unfortunatley i cant get it to work. I have run the network setup wizard on both computers and assigned the right workgroup name to both but still the computers cannot find eachother.

Any hints/tips/or assistance would be gratefully accepted please.

One of the computers was running an old xp with only sp1...installed brand new win xp sp2 and through the wizard it worked first try.
