New to Networking ....................

  hmws 14:26 30 Oct 2006

I would like to connect a laptop running Windows XP Pro to to a Win98SE machine for file sharing only as neither have CD Writer and only one of the machines has USB.

I have a PCMIA card installed on each laptop and a Crossover cable to link the two. (I am assuming there being a green light on each PCMIA card and the fact that the Crossover cable is new there is no problem there).

Is there a step by step guide to creating a network available somewhere, perhaps even in one of the older issues of PC Advisor?

I spent a couple of hours the other evening without any success so I am clearly doing something wrong.

Any help you can give me would be appreciated.
