XP Home is not networkable. I'm pretty sure that's the case, but even
You might try to use Start-Run-\ipaddress and see if a window pops up
with the shared contents.

Can you ping the machines from the other machines?

Another thought is that your wireless network is not ad-hoc, but looking
to an access point, which is necessary to get to the internet. The
wireless router might be blocking station to station traffic.

Dont' turn on NWLink. That's netware.
