Can anyone point me to a good site for info on networking two computers at home. I'm using 10Base2 network cards & co-ax cable. The cards have installed OK but the protocol bit has me a bit stumped.

Cheers.

If you have 2 computers and both are accessing the internet through the network the protocol to use is TCP/IP. This needs to be installed on both machines.

If you're running Windows 98 (probably other Windows versions as well) you will find it in the Microsoft group.
