I would like to know if 2 people that want to set up an Internet Network can?

We live in the same apartment building but in separate apartments and share a lot of common PC use and interests. So, we've thought of setting up a Network between us.

Is this possible?

We have our own individual Internet connections on separate phone lines being that we are in different apartments.

I've looked through XP's help files but everything is about being on one phone line in one building.

Does anyone know if and how setting a Network over the Internet might be accomplished?

Why not run FTP. That way you can access files and stuff over the net. Ive never done it between two PCs only on a server but it wouldn't be to hard. Found this site and there is heaps of info if you google it. http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=1491
