XP Network Wizard & WIn 98 - USB Wireless

I have just installed an Actiontec NTL broadband sharing kit. I have my main machine (an Athlon 2400+, 512Mb, Win XP home) attached to the router by a wired connection and then have a laptop (Celeron 550Mhz, 128Mb ram, Win 98) connected by the Actiontec usb wireless adapter. Both can access the Internet fine.

I ran the Network wizard on my main machine and used it to create a floppy drive 'version' for the laptop. But once I run the wizard from the floppy it needs to re-start the laptop. However, the Network wizard seems to look for the network before the USB adapter is initialised and so can't find it. It reports it can't continue and asks me to run it again... when the same thing happens.

Any suggestions as to how I can (easily?) get the two computers talking and allow the laptop to access files and printer(s) attached to the main machine?

Cheers

Done it 'manually' and it seems to work. If so I'll 'resolve' this shortly.
