NetBIOS settings = Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP

I connect to the internet on all computers with no problem, but I can not
connect to the other computers on my network that are all in the same
I can ping all computers on my network.

The win2k Computers No.1 & No.2 do show all computers on the network, but
when I try to connect to one of them I get a error message: //computer No.1
not accessible, The Network Path Not Found.

The XP Home computer No.3 does not show any computers on the network and the
error message reads: Workgroup not accessible, you might not have permission
to use this network resource. Contact the network administrator of this
server to see if you have access permissions. The list of severs for this
network is not currently available.

My question is there anyone that can help me configure these computers so
that I may get access to the other network computers?  I other words “ Help”
