I have been trying to set up a direct cable connection between my XP home computer and my w2k notebook using dcshare4 (http://www.netfor2.com/DcShare40.html). According to the instructions I should:
1. Click Start->Connect to->Show all connections
2. Click Create a new connection->Next->Setup an advanced connection->Next
3. Click Accept incoming connections->Next
4. Select Direct Parallel. Click Next->Allow virtual private connections->Next
5. Check Guest. Click Next->Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)->Properties
6. Check Specify TCP/IP addresses. Enter 192.168.55.1 and 192.168.55.2. Check Allow calling computer to specify its own address. Click OK
7. Click Next->Finish

But when I get as far as 4 I get the message "Local user database handle" error , and I do not get to see the screen in which I have the options to choose guest. Can anyone tell me what this means?

Making a home network is a frustrating experience. Can anyone offer any easy way to set up a home network using a direct USB connection?

sorry, the full error message is: "An internal error has occurred: the local user database handle is corrupt."

I have the same problem with my computer and I noticed it when I installed XP. I have a cable with wireless connection and my games worked fine when I was on ME. Any game I play now will run fine with a ping of about 50 and then after a minute I'll get about 5-10 seconds of harsh lag.
