    First Name:
    am wanting to know how to network Window XP Home Ed. to Windows ME..
    I know how to network windows ME, but not Windows XP as I am only a new user
    of it.
    So can I get someone to explain to me how I can get the networking between
    the two systems up and running.
    We both have PCI network cards, and are using an RJ45 Crossover cable to
    link the machines.
    If someone could write it out and tell me how to do it, or give me a website
    link that will take me directly to the page.
    When I try to enable the network device, all I get is that either a network
    cable has come undone or either that the connection has failed.

    I am looking to do almost the same thing. XP pro and ME. I am also new to networking also. I now understand it to the point where I think I can do it but I don't know if I can explaine it. I have found easy to understand instruction Here . They also have forums. You should be able to get step by step instructions for connecting the two machines.

    Trying installing netbuei from the XP cd. It should be in "\value added" or something like that (can't find my CD at the moment), then networking. There's a text file in there which tell you where to copy the two files also found in the directory, then to go to local area connection for your NIC and add>protocol>microsoft>netbuei. Then make sure you have both machines set to the same workgroup.
    Or, make sure TCP/IP settings are correct for both machines, i.e. same network, (but unique host number) subnet mask, gateway etc. and you shold be able to connect via TCP/IP.
