    We have one phone line and two computers now. The parents computer is running 98 and mine is running XP. All of us like to be on the net and if one computer is online, the other can't be. I was told if I was to network them we could be on at the same time.

    My main question is how do I do this??? I know mine has an Ethernet card (don't know if that means much) and the parents needs a network card. Is it as simple as getting a card for them (and me if I do need it) plugging them in together and getting online?

    Many thanks!!!!
