Hi simonc

well xp>>win 7>>xp shouldn't be a problem. You need to share folders and have the same user id and passwrds. It is a little easier to share win and XP if you are using workgroup instead of "homegroup" . Samba shouldnt be a problem either because it is just accesing the files it doesn't know from win 7 permissions.

How about you give us some more specifics as to what you want to share and with whom.
