Basically, as long as you enable "File and Printer Sharing" and like XP, you've got to "enable" the "File and Printer Sharing" exception in the Firewall on both computers(it should be the same on Vista), it should work if you Map a network drive to the other computer.. It's normally necessary to have an identical login administrator on both computers which uses the same login name and password. (Don't use the default "administrator" login.. Create a new one and set up all shares and settings using the common admin user.)
Of course, I think the primary node/hub would need to be somewhat fixed so the hops between computers will always be the same.. A mobile system with frequent node switches could cause issues.
Hope this helps.
