You should be able to just try to open the folder (being an admin might help) click the continue button if it asks. May have to accept UAC. I've done it before

How are you connected to the windows 8 machine. Is network discovery and filesharing turned on? Is password protected sharing turned on by default? Found in the Network and Sharing centre. You have to set the folder up on the windows 8 machine as a shared folder. are you using homegroup? If you share the folder out you will be able to access it from the vista xp/machine.
