What are you trying to do and how are you trying to do it?

http://localhost which will bring up the XAMPP Welcome Page is only available on the PC XAMPP is installed on.

So how are you trying to connect to the XAMPP Welcome Page from other computers on your network?

Please be aware that unless you provide great detail in your questions that we here can't possible know what you are doing or have done or what you or anyone else on your network can see on your/their monitors.

How exactly are you trying to view the page on comp 2?

What are you typing in the address bar of your browser on comp1 to access Drupal?

What are you typing in the address bar of comp 2 to access Drupal on comp 1?

Temporarily disable your Windows firewall or ZoneAlarm etc. and try again as in a default XAMPP installation you should be able to access your pages from anywhere on your network, that is if your network is setup correctly, without configuration changes in XAMPP.

Something is blocking access using your network IP for comp 1.

Is 192.168.0.42 your comp 1 or are you using some sort of dynamic IP configuration?

Double check your network settings including how you have setup your IP numbers.

What have you changed in the httpd.conf file or any other configuration files in XAMPP?

Obviously XAMPP is working correctly if you can access Drupal from http://localhost and also if you can access the XAMPP Welcome Page from http://localhost/xampp/index.php

Normally this forum is only concerned that XAMPP is working correctly not whether you have configured your network correctly, as there are other places on the Internet where you can ask questions about configuring your home network.
but i can access the comp1 via filesharing using comp 2
File sharing uses different ports than does a web server - by default Apache listens on port 80 from any IP, MySQL uses port 3306 and they are the ports that are possibly being blocked and preventing access via the network.
