Well first you are going about it all wrong.

The first thing you need to do is setup the Internet Connection and then the Network from that Station and allow File & Printer Sharing when you run the Network Setup Wizard, you also can use Auto Detect Address. Once you have that setup you then move to the next computer and either use the Floppy that you have made or the XP CD to run the Network Setup Wizard and on this computer chose Manual Internet connection and then tell it that this computer connects through another Computer or Residential Gateway and things should then work for you.

Just remember to not only run AV programs on both computers but also to keep them up to date.
