Try this on the win 7 mini...

Control Panel -> System
Under "Computer name, domain and workgroup settings" click "Change Settings"
Click "Change" where it says "To rename this computer or change..."
Make sure "workgroup" is selected and the workgroup name is the same as the workgroup on your xp computer.
click OK, OK

(Don't know why MS put this dialog box under "system" instead of on the "Network and Sharing Center" but I think this is what your missing)
