    Have a look at the attachment in post #5 by me here:
    Modem won't connect through ethernet

    Check that both PCs are in the SAME workgroup, and that in the network-settings File and printer sharing is enabled.
    To share files, rightclick on a file, directory or even drive, select Sharing.. and set the permissions as required.
