Linking 2 Computers with Cards

  Woodmouse 11 18:20 05 May 2004

I am attempting to link two computers, both with Windows XP, and have installed cards in both and linked with a cable. I have purchased a Belkin controller so I am able to see both computer screens on the one monitor. When I go to the main computer that can be linked to the internet, I get an error. Is there a web site that can talk me through the correct proceedure for setting up such a system please?

Would be best to post the error in detail.
