Your Mac settings should be as follows
In regards to your Vista Box, make sure your Ethernet Port is set to DHCP and turn off your firewall. IF you don't receive and ip address immediately open up Command Prompt on your Vista Box (Start Menu>Search "cmd") and type in "ipconfig /renew" and see if that forces your box to recieve a new IP address from your Mac.
