    I usually just go into preference and turn on SMB sharing and then it makes the computers easier to see eachother. :)

    System Preferences > Sharing
    Check the boxes of the stuff you want to share between machines on your network.

    System Preferences > Mobile Me > Back to My Mac to set up screen sharing between machines on your network. Your need a Mobile Me account to screen share from remote locations.

    When the machines "see" each other they will show up in the side bar in finder under the Shared header
