on windows xp machine go to network connections and select setup "setup a home or small office network" follow prompts thru wizard (pending if you want to share internet connection) create a network setup disk or use your xp cd. Place disk or cd in other computer, select perform additional tasks then setup network. follow prompts and make sure that every computer is part of same work group. Keep default work group (MSHOME) and make sure each computer has unique computer names. Also make sure that file and print sharing is installed on win 2000 PC. (local area connection properties/network connections)
that's it

windows 2000 default workgroup is workgroup, XP is MSHOME, something to be aware of.
IF your networking with 2k and XP home you will have to enable the guest account on the 2k box. You ddin't mention which flavor of XP you have. has some good tutorials on setting up a network.
