I am using file sharing between XP/7 computers at my house. Just go into XP and join a Workgroup to whatever you called the one you made in 7. Then share whatever files you want over the network.

in vista - make sure u are on the same workgroup, go to the network and sharing center, and turn on public folder sharing.
easiest thing ever! now to share files drag files to the public folder, which is located on the left hand side when u open a folder under favorite links
