How does the MAC connect to the XP system (which transport or protocol)? Is
the Internet Connection Firewall enabled on the XP system? Can the MAC see
any file shares on the XP system?

I am assuming you opened up the SMB (file and print) sharing ports already.
Will it work if you turn off the firewall?

If you have not opened the firewall ports for sharing start there first
