Networking 2 XP Home Machines with Crossover Cable

I have just connected a crossover cable between my 2 XP Home machines. The connection shows as connected but I cannot connect to the other PC. I have tried using the Ping command, changing the the IP Address and using NetBIOS instead.

Have you run the XP small network wizard.

Ensure both machines have the same Workgroup name and different computer names.

I've tried that but the same problem carries on.

Have you got Firewalls on the machines

Yea, I've got Norton Internet Security 2004 but i've disabled them.
