Triple Network Setup

One of my PC's has Dual Onboard LAN, I have two Windows7 machines connected, fine. I want the computer with the Dual Onboard LAN to have it's second connection from Windows7 to Windows Vista, does anyone know how I would go about this without fudging up my connection between two Windows7 computers ?

Just set everything for Workgroup (as opposed to Homegroup) sharing with account names and passwords for shares... XP style.

Setup Vista as I would if it were Windows XP, but what about the Windows7 machine will it fudge up the connection it already has between it and the other Windows7 machine ?

Yep... but you can set the Win7 machine to XP style sharing as well.

The problem you run into is that HomeGroups use ipv6 for addressing... making them mostly incompatible with anything but themselves.

XP (and most of the planet, for that matter) uses IPv4.

I've made some progress, I have the Windows7 machine talking to the other Windows7 machine as it was before (good) as well I have the Windows Vista Machine seeing the Windows 7 machine and vice versa.

The only problem when I try to access the Vista machine I get a Windows Security "Enter Network Password" I enter the Vista machines Admin UserName and Password but it first won't login even after entering the correct UserName and Password and it won't see the folder that I have applied sharing to on the Windows Vista machine.
