have you enabled all the file sharing/printer sharing stuff on all PCs?

if you have done that then maybe windows is getting confused as to where to find it. you can make a shortcut directly to the shared folder by right clicking the desktop > new shortcut > then type the name of the folder with two slashes on from of the name(i would just put everything n the desktop for now).

xp sometimes doesn't find computers/folders though its automatic discovery tool, if you do it manually it is reliable.

dang i forgot to tell you that you need to put the name of the pc in there too. like this:

//name of pc/name of folder/name of file
