The problem with getting XP and Vista to communicate is Link-Layer Topology Discovery. You can download the small update for XP that fixes this from Microsoft's website below.

Thanks for the tip on XP/Vista talking. I actually tried that with no luck. BUT, its kind of a non-issue at this point. I've installed Vista on the Mini and am loving it. I've got a ways to go to determine if everything I want works adequately (I vLited fairly extensively), or if I'll need to do another build. But Vista-Vista communication should be a lot easier!
