1. Install wireless adapters.
2. Setup system hub if required. (You may be able to set up one of the PCs as the hub with a special adapter.

3. Install a networking protocal such as peer to peer networking on both PCs.

When you purchase a system, there should be instructions included.
If the instructions are not clear, check out the mfgs web site.

Here is a very good article on setup, configuration and (not to be overlooked) security.

This combined with the manuals from your Wireless hardware should get you hooked up in no time. For hardware information and details, check out CNET's reviews:

I went with a Linksys WAP-11 and Orinoco cards...and have been very satisfied.

Make sure to delete any spaces in the above URLs.
Hope this helps!
