Howdy, my room mate wants to connect his XP home edition PC to his other Windows 2000 PC so he can store junk on that PC. Both PCs have one nic card each but he wants to be able to connect to the LAN I have set up with the XP PC. The router I have has only 4 ports and all four are being used by other PCs so that is not an option. I was thinking something along the lines of connecting the serial ports but Im not sure if that is workable considering bandwith issues. Any suggestions? This is a lowest possible budget operation.
