For file sharing this looks the easiest to understand as its a Youtube video but haven't tried it.

All you need do is Switch both Computers and Printer On, Go to Control Panel on the XP computer then Networking Wizard. Follow that through including making a Disc, You can use a Flash drive if you do not have a Floppy. after using Wizard while things are still turned on use the disc on the other PC double click the one file on the disc. the Printer will then be setup for Sharing, next press Windows Key plus the E Key to start Explorer right click files or folders you want to share. Do not make Main Operating System Partition Shared
