how can i share resources between 2 routers?

i have 2 linksys supports acting as a gateway or router...and has an uplink port..

the other does not have either of those..

Now i have it setup kinda goofy right now..i am able to share internet, but not files/printers...the routers are on different IPs, other wise XP complains....i figure i need to get my bros XP machine on one router to recognize MY computers on the other router running xp and SuSE with Samba.

Both support DHCP..ive tried many things, but im up for starting over to make it work. thanks in advance guys.

Hope I get you right...
bro's XP(Network1) - linksys1 - linksys2 - xp and SuSE with Samba(Network2).
That gives you three networks, each dash is one network, you could say.
Observe that the line linksys1-linksys2 is a separate network (Network3) if they are strict routers.
I'm not sure what problem you have, it should work fine.
Maybe it's the DHCP-configuratio that's troublesome?
Let's say linksys1 is connected to internet.
Network1 has default gateway linksys1, linksys1 has default gateway internet, linksys2 has default gateway linksys1, network2 has default gateway linksys2.
If the routing tables are not created automatically, you will have to create static entries, could be needed on linksys1:
add routes to network1, linksys2 & network2
