T420 Windows 7 Pro. Networking.../

Re: New ThinkPad 420 replacing an XP Pro laptop which was ethernetted to my Windows 7 Pro desktop. 

Via my desktop I could directly access my D\ drive on the old XP laptop. It appeared in the Network folder in Explorer.

Now in the desktop I just get a list of the libraries  on the ThinkPad. I have never used or needed libraries so, how do I configure the ThinkPad to make its newly created D\ drive accessible from my desktop?
