    I am trying to set up an internet connection share. I cant share files because the host pc is XP Pro with NTFS and the network pc is Windows 98 Fat32. When I did the setup the Wizard said I could use the XP disk in the 98 system to complete the task. I also followed the directions from this note,

    Try this:
    "Just plug the Crossover cable into the two computers. To set it up go to Control Panel/Network.

    If there is and entry there for TCP/IP fine. If not you need to add it. Click Add the Protocal/Add. Select Microsoft and select TCP/IP and OK.

    Once you have TCP/IP install highlight it and click properties. Click specifiy IP address and insert Enter sub net mask of

    You may get asked if you want to re-boot at this stage. Decline as there is more to do.

    Click File and Printer sharing and tick both boxes. Now you can re-boot.

    Do the same on the other computer but this time enter an IP address if with the same mask. Install file and printer sharing as well and reboot.

    Once the computers have re-booted you need to set up sharing. Right click on any drive or folder in Windows Explorer and clcik Sharing. Click shared as: Either axcept the name offered or enter one of your own. In access type I would suggest Full if you are the only one to be using these computers, otherwise enter passwords if required.

    Do this for every Drive or folder you want to be visible of the other computer. If you select a Drive of Folder, all sub folders are automatically visible."

    Now what I have is the host is detecting the networked pc because when I reboot the network pc the host see's the connection gone.

    On the network pc there is an error message: The system has detected a conflict for IP address with the system having hardware address 00:07:95:AC:19:13. Where am I going wrong and what do I have to do to just share a connection and not worry about sharing files.

    One other small question. Do I have to install antivirus and firewall on the second pc or is it protected with the hosts system
