I haven't tried it myself, but from what I've heard they hide all the
protocols and all you can select manually is TCP/IP and Client for Microsoft

Is that your experience with the "simple file sharing"? Or does XP Home
have another protocol that can be installed that works Okey-dokey with
other Windows machines?
I just can't believe that M$ would completely abandon compatibility with
other Windows machines.  It's more likely (to me) that they renamed all
the protocols (in an attempt at marketing cuteness) and there's something
extra that you have to install now to make it work (that isn't obvious)
