    I have read both your post but I do not have a good idea of what your trying to do.

    Could you start over with what your school project is meant to accomplish?

    If you simply want to connect to a share then open your "run" box and type \\computername\share and a window to that share will pop-up. (replace "computername" with the remote computer's name and "share" with the shared folder's name.)

    If you want to see what the computer is sharing then type \\computername and a window of open shares will pop-up.

    Note that you can also use the computer's IP address in place of the "computername".

    Good Luck

    EDIT Have you ran the "networking wizard" on the XP laptop?
