I'm either really stupid or too clever for my own good. I found the problem at long last. When I set up the network about a year ago I dissabled tcp/ip for file sharing. The idea was to make the lan more secure from internet because the lan wouldn't use the internet protocol. Unfortunately, Vista defaults to tcp/ip for file sharing and I forgot that I had dissabled it on the XP.
So, I reset tcp/ip on the XP and now everything works just fine.
