can someone please answer this question?

i just set up a dsl wireless network at home on two computers. computer 1 is connected to broadband router via usb and connected to belkin hub via Ethernet, computer 2 is not connected to anything just has a wireless pci card installed.

i have everything working ok but need to know if the virus and firewall on computer 1 is enough for computer 2 or do i need to install something else on computer 2 also.

computer 1 has the msn premium internet software that includes a pop-up guard, virus guard and firewall protection and win me.

on computer 2 i have win98 and is not able to use the software. tried to use zonealarm on computer 2 with but block out even when i allowed it still did not get through so i uninstall the zonealarm. it works now but am i safe without any other virus protection on computer no. 2?

any help would be appreciated,thanks

You have two seperate computers. Each needs it's own protection. Analogy: Two cars if I have an alarm system installed in car 1 will keep car 2 from being stolen? Not trying to be a smart a$$. :thumbsup:
