    Can they ping by name? If so, what are the symptoms when you attempt to access shared resources?

    I assume you've ran winxp's network setup wizard on each computer. Also you can try messing with windows firewall like disabling it on each pc then restarting them and see if it helps.

    My question is CAN they ping by name. If not, that's the first thing you need to correct before you go any farther.

    Let's see this for each machine.

    Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

    Type the following command:

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.
