I have win xp, I just setup my wife's computer with winxp and we have a cable modem for internet service. I don't have the money atm to buy a hub and network that way, isn't there SOME way I can use my computer as basically a server and connect our computers via usb or ethernet (or something) and share the internet connection that way until I can purchase a hub?

I don't get the part about the crossover cable....is this just a plain ethernet cable that I connect the two cards with? or is it different?
