Have you enabled file and printer sharing?

Have you actually set at least one folder as "shared" in each PC by right clicking and selecting the "Sharing & Security" option? You will only be able to see and access those folders in the remote PC that have been "shared".

Also, any firewall software needs to be configured to allow access to the networked computers.
