Am constantly having problems with networking between win98se and xp.
So I got fed up trying andI have just bought 2 usb bluetooth adapters, and can transfer files and photos very quickly between computers. This is what I wanted networking for, but bluetooth works in my case much better.
I transfered a large jpeg photo from one computer to the other in seconds.
Hope this helps anyone with similar problems

It's horses for courses and, for what you describe this is a good solution.

What did they cost? maybe this is even competative with direct cable links and it certainly removes some of the distance constraints.

Will shortly be getting my old 98SE back from Uni, will your solution work getting both on the internet? TR

What did they cost?

From £18 in PC world.This is for 10m distance
£30-£40 gives you 100 m distance

I think it does, but it would need confuigering

That is a good price about the same or less than a USB interlink cable and certainly more flexible.

Good plan

Good idea that; I may give it a go myself.
