Today's Vista stupidities, archived in case I need them again:

Vista disables access to administrative shares by default. To re-enable them, add a DWORD key "LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy" value of "1" to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

Vista cannot see XP boxes on the network unless you install the LLTD service on the XP box in question. MS do not supply a way to install this on XP SP3 because they are too busy shaving monkeys. Here are someone's instructions for how to do this: http://x3webworx3.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!E40FC8E37C2475AE!234.entry

Once these two things are done, then you can have a vaguely functional home network back.
