Check the status of any firewalls, and that you have shares set.

Have you uninstalled any firewalls that are running?

Have you made sure that the XP firewall has been switched off on both computers. When you set up a network the XP firewall is switched on by default.

Gerrycan ignore this if I am totally wrong but have you checked that the XP firewalls are off as I said you do not have to turn them on they will be set as on by default if you want them off you will have to go and turn them off, but as I said if you have already done all this then forgive me for rambling;-)

only 1 pc can have ics set up on it. If the other one has had ics on it even some time ago unless you route it out and get rid of it you will never get it to work. You must also have sharing enabled and it helps if you copy a file or two into the shared folders directory. The simplest thing of all is to ensure that all pcs belong to the same group.
