Go into the Network Control Panel on each and give them IP adresses in the same subnet. Like this -

PC - Ip= 192.168.1.1 SubnetMask= 255.255.255.0

Laptop - IP=192.168.1.2 Subnet Mask = 255.255.255.0

Then connect them each with a patch cable to a hub or a switcj\h, or use a crossover cable to connect the directly to each other.

In addition to that, you may want to give them easy to remember names and put them on the same workgroup.

Also, you will need the Client For Microsoft Networks on the 95 machine, and you should log onto it using a username and password which matches one on the XP box.

Then just use file and print sharing and you are away!

Go into Control Panel > Network.

Click [b]Add[/b]. Click [b]Client.[/b] Choose [b]Microsoft[/b] from the list on the left. . . Then choose [b]Client for Microsoft Networks[/b].

That should do it.
