    I have a Win ME with cable access using the network card
    that came with the machine. I know I will not be able to
    hook my other Win 2000 PC up and share the internet

    However I would like to network the two pcs, but despite
    changing IP addresses, gateways etc. I cannot get this to
    work. Before the WIN ME machine was "repaired" recently
    it did work, but the engineer re-loaded ME and lost what
    settings I had!

    If the ME machine is off the WIN2000 will tell me the
    network cable is not plugged in, and if I duplicate IP
    addresses both machines complain. I am missing one vital
    step, but have no idea what it is. Can anyone help please?

    Why not? See the following links for configuring Internet Connection
    Sharing (ICS), or better yet, look at the configs using a cheap router at
    these links:
