I have tried without success to network my laptop (xp home edition) to my pc (xp pro)
is it possible?

You haven't mentioned how they are networked:

- directly with crossover cable, but without "Internet Connection Sharing"?

- directly with crossover cable and with "Internet Connection Sharing?

(The distinction is important as it affects the way IP addresses are allocated)

- via a broadband router?

You need to set at least one folder as "shared" in its Properties in each PC.

You need to configure any firewall software to allow access to the networked computers, often done by adding their IP addresses to the "trusted" area.
