We have 3-User Total Protection and it is installed on a laptop which has XP Pro SP3 OS and on a desktop which has Win 2000 OS. Is there a networking compatibility issue between these two operating systems?
No not really, However please mention the version details of the McAfee programs installed on both of your computers. Also when you say "network compatibility" what happens exactly? Are you getting any error message while sharing the files - if so please mention that as well
Win 2000 File version of mcagent:
Does not have Network section in W2K.

Win XP Pro File version:
Did not find the individual breakdown for XP. It does have a way to change operating system compatibility on the XP in the properties.
Thanks for the information, but could you please let us know "what is the actual issue that you are facing with McAfee" !
There is no network. There is knowledge that each is using the router but no ability to communicate to each other. The XP computer will not allow an invitation to join the network. Sorry that I am not as savvvy at this "chat" stuff but, it is the only way to get answers, seemingly.
Please try the following:
Reboot the computer and check the status, hope this would help you
