If two computers are using Windows XP Home, and you run the Network
Setup Wizard on them, is it necessary to create a disk after the first
run for the second computer, or can you just close out the wizard on
both without using any other disks?

You don't need the Wizard period to make two NT based O/S(s) communicate
with each other on a network.

But on the other hand if you have to use the Wizard, you don't need any
disks. One uses the disks to install the networking for non-NT based O/S
(s) such as ME/98/95 so they can share resources with a XP/NT based O/S.

Google is your friend.

Are both computers clients to a router or is one of them a host for ICS?

Both clients to a LinkSys WRT54G router. Simple home network.
