    Yep right click the file you want to share and go to Sharing and Security Click the I understand risks of networking just Enable File sharing Click Share this folder Click Permissions and everyone Full Control

    then on the other pc in the address bar or run put in \\computername should see the share folder there.

    any problems gives a shout .

    Vista is a pain in the Arse!

    Open Networking and Sharing Center
    and the Sharing and Discovery bit Enable Network Discovery, File Sharing, Public Folder Sharing. Like image below
    Spoiler:




    Vista System in the Networking and Sharing Center
    there should be a Picture of your computer and under it the computer should have name of the laptop
    in this pic its Vista-Ultimate so to open that computer i would put in \\Vista-Ultimate will allow you to see the files.

    XP > Right click my computer> Properties > Computer name tab and use that with the \\ in address bar

    if you don't get what i mean just let me know as i can rabble crap a little
