Hi lilrobo,

Please fill out your System Specs as completely as possible so we can better assist you.

It's not clear from your post what the problem is - are all computers showing up on the network successfully? If you need further guidance please have a look at this tutorial: Networking home computers running different versions of Windows

Window 7 Ultimate 32bit

Vista should be able to join the home group if you add it on one of the other win 7 pc's. I also thought that if my pc is win 7 and my laptop is vista ultimate it won't be able to join the group but I tried it anyway and all I have to do was set me a home group password and entered that password at my laptop and in no time a transfered all my files.

Hope this advise will help you.
