Default trasnfer files wirelessly, over wifi (workgroup)

ok so I want to back up a few desktop folders onto my NEW laptop cause im planning on wiping my HD on my desktop, i want to trasnfer them wirelessly over. how do i do this? my laptop is an lenovo thinkpad x200 (windows xp proffesional) my desktop is a dell xps630(running vista 32bit) i NEED ACURATE instructions, ive heard there is problems, if you are trying to do this with 2-differente OS's. So far all i've done is set the same workgroup. but the computers dont see each other. well i can see VISTA from my XP, but when i try to access my vista desktop from my XP laptop it asks me for a user name and password?!?!

Just move the files to the shared/public folder...

Or set up your other computer as a network place on each one, and drag n drop the files directly from the desktop to the laptop.
