First, try this:

If it's still not working, consider checking the following point:

1. Disable firewall in Vista or allow "File and printer sharing" in the firewall settings (Ports 139 and 445).

2. Does it say that "you don't have permission" after prompting you for a user/password box or does it immediately says it?. For this, Make sure that the user logged in XP is defined in Vista's users with the same password or define a different user in vista.

By the way you don't need to define the gateway IPs. Since both PCs are talking in the same LAN. When you need to access outside your LAN such as the internet, set the gateway to the IP of the router you have.
