Sounds like the Windows installation on the "better" computer doesn't have a mapping for the host name "localhost." Try:
If that works, you just have to tell Windows that the alias "localhost" refers to the IP address 127.0.0.1. I have no idea how that's done in Windows (but if you were using Linux... :)
Note, also, that you can use your computer's hostname. So, if you've got a network interface card (NIC) configured on your PC, use the network name. IIRC, it's on the "Identification" tab of the "Network Neighborhood" properties (unless they've changed that since Win9x).
