Creating a home network for shared folders

I've been wracking my brains, but cannot make this work in windows 7. It was super easy in xp. How can I set up 2 computers to share folders? I've created a homegroup, on both computers, but still they aren't communicating. Anybody know how to do this?
Thanks!
