share one folder to be accessible to other PC. OR share your CD drive.

Do not conform yourselves to the standards of this world, but let GOD transform you inwardly by a complete change of your mind. Then you will be able to know the will of GOD

That's very simple.

Make sure the workgroup name is the same on both PCs. On PC1 right click on the folder you want to share files from and go to sharing. Set the appropriate settings. On PC2 do the same thing. Reboot both machines and you're done.

If this doesn't work then i'd try setting static IPs on both machines, sometimes this resolves a lot of troubleshooting.
