Can't see other computers in Workgroup???

I have my new Vista machine set up to the same workgroup as my other XP machine, but I cannot see the XP machine. Any ideas why?

Install It On the XP Machine

Here's the link:

Typing "LLTD" into Google would have allowed you to find it..

After downloading, then installing LLTD on the XP machine, make sure you set up all the file and printer sharing by creating the EXACT same user account and password on both computers.. It must be an account with admin privileges and can't be the default "administrator" log in.. After creating identical accounts on both machines, log in with that account each machine, then sharing the needed folders and printers.

Hope this helps.
