Yes, but there are a few differences between the two:
In XP, the default workgroup name is: MSHOME
In Vista, the default workgroup name is: WORKGROUP
Make sure that both
XP and Vista's workgroup names are the same.
In XP, the default
shared folders name is: Shared Docs
In Vista, the default shared folders name is: Public
Copy and paste
between the two is a simple task.

2. Make the following settings changes:
Discovery set to ON
File Sharing is
set to ON
Sharing is set to ON
Protected Sharing is set to OFF
