    Windows xp has MSHOME and Windows 7 has "homegroup".

    How do I get them to access each others files?!

    You can rename the XP workgroup. You can rename the Win7 workgroup. You
    can rename both machines' workgroup/s. You can make both machines'
    workgroup be named 'Rick'. Or 'Ick'.

    "On your Windows 7 computer, click the Start button at the bottom left of the screen, then go to the Control Panel and choose Network and Sharing
    Center. Click the link under "view your active networks" (if you've set up a Homegroup,the link should say "home network").
    In the next window choose "Work network" that will switch you from a homegroup to a workgroup so your two computers can talk to each other. Before you
    can network the computers, you must assign the same workgroup name to both of them and SHARE folders in Explorer"
