I've had a Win98se PC for awhile. I recently aquired a PC using WinXP Pro.
Can I use a crossover cable to network the 2 PCs together in order to share the harddisks and printers?

yes you can.. i myself purchased a hub instead because we ended up growing. i have 7 pc's 2 for the kids 1 for the lil woman and i have 3 running print file and game servers and then my machine.

if your never going to expand use crossover if you have future plans grab a hub or router. but you shouldnt have any issues using a crossover cable.. one thing with 98 is you might have issues getting them to see each other.. if so then add the protocal ipx on each machine and that should fix it.

If you have broadband or dsl you should just get a router.
