simple home network setup

  1. Hi,

    I would like to find out how to setup a small simple home network.

    I have one W2K Prof machine, that is connected to an ADSL modem via a
    network card.

    I have a XP Home laptop that I would like to be able to use the ADSL
    connection from the W2K machine.

    I have set up like this....

    W2K Machine....
    Physical Connections....

    Machine --> Network Card 1 --> ADSL Modem
    (I have shared this connection with Network Card 2)

    Machine --> Network Card 2 --> hub
    (I have set this IP to 192.168.0.1, subnet mask 255.255.0.0)

    I have turned off all firewalls for the ease of setting it up.

    * What do I need to setup/configure on the Laptop to be able to access the
    internet on the W2K machine?

    resource to be accessed?

    Thanks.
