Hi Malc,

Its easy if you know how and here is the know-how:

http://www.romulus2.com/articles/guides/network/network.htm

For the network cable go to your local friendly little PC shop, and get some 'Cross-over Cable' with the ends on about 2mtrs more than you think you'll need. The network cards- 'Local Area Network Adapters', (you'll need 2) may also be bought from the same but shop around as they can be bought for as little as 10 each.

Any problems let me know or try the frorums on the Romulus2 site as they are very good for all PC related subjects.

Cheers Dave
Checked the site out and it sounds a lot easier than i thought it would be.
Got a computer fair localy next week so should be able to do it on the cheap.
At least then it wont be such a problem with the daughter and me fighting for the printer and stuff when she does her homework, and my system wont be clogged up with her stuff.

Thanks
MALC
