Win 7 Ultimate and xp laptop need to see each other

My main laptop has windows 7 ultimate and has two harddrives. The 2nd harddrive is shared.
I have a second laptop which has Windows XP on it and I login with the same name and password as the first laptop.

On the xp computer, how do I get to the data harddrive of the win7 machine. It does not see the computer.

The video was great.
I was not aware that in Windows 7 one could create a workgroup, which I set up.
On the xp computer, the shared drive now shows up and this works well for me.

Awesome, I'm glad you liked the video and were able to set up an XP/7 workgroup! Let me know if there's anything else I can assist you with.
