I am planning to install Win2000. Where can I find information and instructions on how to network 2 computers at home if the client is only using Win98 SE ?

Thanks

It's easy With TCP/IP network:
1. You need ethernet UTP network adaptor on both PC installed
2. You need crossower cable between Computers (if You wish to add more PC's later to the network, You better get some hub and use normal twisted pair cables.)
3. Configure Your PC-s with a similar IP adresses (Example: 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.2, no gateway needed, netmask 255.255.255.0)

And that's it!
You could try to ping PC-s (From command line: ping 192.168.0.1) If U get reply from antoher computer You have Your network working :) 

If U have more Questions please ask!
