Hi to you to :)

by Jacky Howe In reply to ad hoc networks

An ad-hoc (or "spontaneous") network is a local area network or other small network, especially one with wireless or temporary plug-in connections, in which some of the network devices are part of the network only for the duration of a communications session or, in the case of mobile or portable devices, while in some close proximity to the rest of the network. In Latin, ad hoc literally means "for this," further meaning "for this purpose only," and thus usually temporary. The term has been applied to future office or home networks in which new devices can be quickly added, using, for example, the proposed Bluetooth technology in which devices communicate with the computer and perhaps other devices using wireless transmission.
One vendor offers an ad-hoc network technology that allows people to come to a conference room and, using infrared transmission or radio frequency (RF) wireless signals, join their notebook computers with other conferees to a local network with shared data and printing resources. Each user has a unique network address that is immediately recognized as part of the network. The technology would also include remote users and hybrid wireless/wire connections.

That you dont really understand what an ad hoc network is, unless of course you are saying that all you want to do is connect 2 computers together.
If that is the case then all you need to do is join the computers with a Cat5e crossover ethernet cable and run the network setup wizard on each machine if they are both running windows xp.
However it doesn't sound like this is what you are trying to do so I think you will need to be more specific
