Help with Wireless Ad-Hoc

I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium 64b and want to use the ad hoc feature so my brother can transfer files with me and vice versa, but his version is Windows XP. What version of Windows are compatible with this ad hoc feature?

Ad-hoc is just connecting two computers together with a crossover cable. All Windows OS's support this.
