    buy 2 network cards
    1 router
    connect your modem to the routers uplink/internet port, run cable from the router to the other two computers. set all of your TCP/IP settings to dynamic/automatic make sure the computers are on the same workgroup and there you go.

    I have XP Pro and Win 98 running, badly, but running. Follow xtremcoder's advice and then go to the control panel in XP and set up new small office network

    Actually, the advice is right, but the 2 computers do not have to be a part of the same workgroup for internet access, only to access files from each other. Do it anyway, but it's not necessary for web access.
