Two systems are connected wirelessly to a Netgear DG824M
Router/Firewall/ADSL Modem. I'm trying to open ports for both systems to be
able to use the P2P application, "eMule".

The following rule works for my machine:

Service: eMule(TCP:4662)
Action: ALLOW Always
Send to LAN Server: 192.168.0.2
WAN Users: Any

but when I try to create an identical rule, except with the other machines
LAN address, it doesn't work, unless it's placed higher in the list than my
rule, but then mine doesn't work!

So how should I go about opening a port for 2 systems?

You should find out what port triggering means. I don't know if you can
get it to work for a p2p program on two computers, never heard of anyone
trying to do it. It's bad enough the compromise risk on one machine, let
alone two. ;-)
