You can add exceptions like ICMP but the general Idea is that they can't even see you. On all the networks I work on if the computer is already behind a firewall then I shut off XP firewall through group policy. I am not a big fan of software firewalls. They tend to break stuff. If you want to run the firewall but add an exception right click your local area network adaptor and choose properties. Then go to the advanced tab. From here click on settings and you can add exceptions to the firewall.
