You need to give more details. If this is a small or home network based on a router, you will need to make sure all of the computers involved are set with the same workgroup name (defaults on XP and 7 are different). That should be enough to see XP share folders on the 7 machine, but to see the windows 7 resources from the XP machine, it will get more involved. It took me a while to get it right and I am not completely clear on everything I tried and how many were actually necessary. I think that when setting the share folders, setting specific users and using passwords did not work, but setting it to allow 'everyone' did. I hope that this helps you. Be more specific on everything if it does not.
