Getting Win2K and Win XP to communicate

By onyxdrake ·
I am having the worst time trying to get my two computers, one with Win 2K Pro the other with XP Pro, to talk!
Does anybody have a clear cut set of directions on how to configure the two to see each other?
The Win XP computer saysthat I should be able to link between the two LAN cards as peer to peer, is this true or do I need to hook up a hub?

Make sure you are using a crossover cable if you don't have hub/switch or they never will see each other. Also, I would suggest installing NetBeui on both. For XP, you may have to hunt for NetBeui on the installation CD, but it is there.
