    How do i make my Network a private network?

    i just built this computer and i am new to vista, we are able to connect the other Windows XP computers to our Xbox 360 to share video files, when i go to share my media, my network settings say that i am unable to because this network is a public network. How do i change the network to private so i can share my files to the X box 360? and suggestions?
