photos from network: doesn't see my pc

My Infocast 8" sees my one computer running Windows 7, but doesn't see the other one running Windows XP (with UPnP enabled, if it matters), nor the Mac or NAS server.  I need it to at least see the Windows XP machine.  Any suggestions from anyone?

pjsg over on the Chumby forums pointed me to the need to run the XP box as a DLNA server.  You can turn on sharing in Windows Media Player or install a 3rd party DLNA server.  I'm trying TVersisty.

One more thing: there's some sort of bug, it seems if you try to access a folder with a very large number of files the device (and actual Chumbys) reboot.

thanks, I did set up WMP11 to share the media and then I could see it. On my xp desktop, the infocast would reboot when I tried to access the folders. It worked fine on my windows 7 laptop.
