My set up is Laptop running XP Home and Desktop running Win 98. Desktop is attached to internet (hard wired) via a modem/wireless router. XP laptop connects to router for internet access. I need to network the 2 machines to share files and printers.
Is this possible with the hardware I already have or do I need to purchase something else?
Can anyone tell me what I need to do to get this set up? I have tried the Network Setup Wizard on the XP machine but I don’t have a floppy drive and I get a message stating that the wizard cannot find a removable storage device to save the file to. I do have a DVD/CD writer but this doesn’t seem to register.
Any help would be very much appreciated as I have been trying to sort this problem out for some time.
