I assume both are on XP ?

goto start then run type cmd then press return you now have a dos window.
You need to know the name of the other pc then type

net use p: \\pcname\c$

pcname is the name of the pc you are connecting to.

It may ask for a password and username you want the admin one on the pc you are connecting too.

You should now have a drive p which is the drive of the other pc.

You can save the txt as connect.cmd and then double click on it if you want to connect again.

There are other ways to do this via explorer and the network icon but this is the simple way(famous last words).
