    The default network settings should work fine to network 2000 and XP.
    It will be a little easier to access shared disks and folders if you
    set 2000's workgroup name to MSHOME to match XP.

    Share the desired disks and folders and access them through My Network
    Places.

    I've written a web site that should help you solve the problem:

    Windows XP Network Troubleshooting
    [url]http://www.practicallynetworked.com/sharing/troubleshoot[/url]

    Please pay particular attention to these sections:

    1. Firewalls: Permanently disable XP's built-in Internet Connection
    Firewall on local area network connections -- it's for use only on a
    direct modem connection to the Internet. Disable and un-install all
    other firewalls while troubleshooting.

    2. Protocols: Use only one for File and Printer Sharing. If the
    network needs more than one protocol, unbind File and Printer Sharing
    from all but one of them.

    3. NetBIOS over TCP/IP: Make sure that it's enabled on all computers.
