    Enable guest account on all machines,
    Enable simple file sharing on all machines,
    Upgrade the SP1 machine to SP2,
    share drives/directories for each machine as required...

    As an optional extra map the required drives/diectories on any machine as required.

    That is basically it.

    The above assumes you have taken the defaults and are using a workgroup, likely called WORKGROUP on each machine...

    You may wish to check you can ping each machine before going down this route - that is pretty much taken for granted.
