n e ways you jus have to enable file sharing on both computers,
and once thats done i find the best way (because vista doesnt always show up their files)
goto one of the computers and type \\computer-name
and it will take you to the shared folder,
That pretty much covers it. I find it easier to run the network setup wizard (Setup Connection or network in vista) , that way you know the firewalls on both systems will allow the transfer and it'll make finding the shared folders a lot easier.
Something you can also try is the files and settings tansfer wizard if Vista has that option. Not sure if it would copy everything you wanted, but it could definitely help.
