and then make sure you have at least one file or drive set to "shared" on each PC.

Now see if you can see the other machine.

Note. SP2 by default turns the XP firewall ON.

Keep all firewalls turned OFF until you have resolved this problem. If you're using third party firewalls such as Zone Alarm, turn those off too.
