If you're using XP.... Right click My Computer -> Properties -> Computer Name tab. The full computer name will need to be different on both PCs whilst the Workgroup needs to be the same. If you need to change these settings, click on the Change radio button.
You will need to restart the PCs if you change those settings. Now goto My Network Places and see if the shared files show up.
