XP ad-hoc wireless network - accessing shared files and printers

    I've 2 pcs running XP Pro and each has a wireless card. I've successfully set
    up the ad-hoc network on the host and have connected using the client. Each
    PC is in a common workgroup.
    Now, this may be a stupid question; call it the vagaries of an ageing
    pensioner's mind. How do i actually physically "see" and attach the shared
    resources that are on the host, at the client. Do I need to set up a "network
    place"? If so, how should this be formatted in a mapped drive? Or is there a
    simple method that I am just not seeing? My ad-hoc network is simply called
    "Clive'sNetwork".
    I ultimately want to use the internet connection on the host, from the
    client but am having IP issues at the client. I will post a query on this
    separately.
    All help welcome!!
