    Win2k and XP make it very easy to set up a network. Beside that, I can't suggest much because it's too broad.

    Go to homenethelp.com.

    This site has helped me along with many other people set up home networks.

    As far as hardware goes, get each computer a PCI 10/100 Network Card. They come in many brands, some good ones are Linksys, NetGear, and D-Link. You might have one already installed in your computer(s). Check to see, because most computers within 4 years old have them. Don't forget you will need a card for each computer on the network.

    Then you need a router, which is available in many brands also. I like the three brands I listed above personally.
