1. Make sure they are in the Network shared foldler, not the computer shared folder.

To share a folder, right click on it, and go to sharing and secuity and opt to share it across the network

2. As far as I know you need a server for that, dont think there is a way with stand alone computers.s

You need to enable the File and Printing feature. Go into My Network Place and then go to "Setup Home or Office Network" on the left side. Walk through the wizard and you're all set. You can even setup your printer over the network once that is done. Just make sure you install network printer instead of local printer.

This is one of those things when I wish I was there to see your setup. So you went through the network setup wizard and you got nothing? Maybe the firewall on each PC is preventing your other PC's IP from accessing each other. You may have to enable the IP's for each computer in your firewall configuration.

How about this. Try just diabling your firewall on both PC's and see what happens.
