This is a commonly overlooked item in Windows XP Professional. This applies to users with or without Service Pack 1. Windows XP Home edition does not have this option, as it is automatically enabled by default. Without this option enabled, you will be using the old style sharing options from Windows 2000 and back. Sharing between 2 Windows XP machines is MUCH simplified it you make sure to have this option enabled.

To enable this option, follow these steps:

My Computer >> Tools >> Folder Options >> View >> (scroll to bottom) >> CHECK Use simple file sharing (Recommended)
