Can I have some help setting up a home network?

Hi everyone I want to setup a home network so I can access files between my desktop and laptop but not to sure on how to do it. My desktop is running windows 7 64 and my laptop is running vista 32. I am looking to access things like music pictures and docs etc.

Would be grateful for any help

Thanks so much

Make sure both machines are in the same workgroup. Then you need to share whatever folder it is you are going to be getting the files from.

Then you can hit start-->run-> and type in the IP address of the machine on which the folder is shared.

Make sure you have file and printer sharing turned on in network and sharing center.
