Yes, very possible. Probably the wrong forum to put this in though. (theres a network forum on this website.) You'll need either 2 network patch cables and at least a 2 port hub or switch, a standard crossover cable, a standard usb cable, or two usb cables and usb 4 port hub or switch. this setup can come be as inexpensive as $5 depending on which option you go for. (USB being the least expensive but most unreliable). You also need to make sure you either have a USB port of LAN card in each computer depending on which option you chose. Once you have your equipment, run the network setup wizard on xp. after working through the wizard (very easy - hold your hand), choose to create a floppy disc. Make sure you have a fully formatted floppy handy. Once the floppy has been made, insert it into the computer running 95 and run the program on it. All settings should load and you should be ready to go.
