for sahring documents you need to share a folder. look it here https://hubpages.com/technology/How-to-share-folder-in-windows-XP

and for printer sharing do as he said

"go to the printer that you want to share, and right-click on it.
Go to Sharing.
Select share this printer.
Choose a simple share name.
Go on the other computer,
start > Run and type
\\<computer name that has the printer>\<shared printer name> and hit enter.
then it should install the printer.
