file sharing problem over network

I have a PC & laptop connected by a new network, using a netgear dgb111g. I use windows XP on both, and can access the internet from both. I have set up a new workgroup and both are in it. I can see the appropriate files I want to share from each computer. I can access the laptop from the PC but not vice versa. I get the message on the laptop "\\main\directory is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this computer to find out if you have access permissions. Not enough server storage is available to process this command."
Same thing happens with firewalls off.
The page file is set to 4096 as max and min, and even an empty directory wont open.
Help??

Have you run the setup wizard, AND enabled File and Print sharing on BOTH computers.
