Direct cable link required
On one cumputer I have the option for direct cable link
The other computer does not give this option
ie when I go to control panel..network connections there is not option for advanced setup for direct cable link.

Why not spend about £20 on 2 network cards & a length of Cat5 crossover cable and connect your PCs about 1000 times faster than a parallel cable link.

XP makes it very easy to network 2 PCs, especially if they're both running XP.
