While most of the content of this guide is straight forward enough for the average Windows user to figure out, I’ve published this guide to demonstrate just how easy it is to setup your own network of two or more computers at home and how fun it can be, not to mention cost effective because of features like Internet and Printer Sharing. I’ll be mentioning things like suggested hardware for the server PC for example; the guide isn’t just limited to software guidance. It’s worth noting that because Microsoft did such a good job with XP and it’s networking, no third party software is required to execute such services as Internet and Printer Sharing. Just set a couple of DNS and gateway entries and we are home and hosed. I’ll be demonstrating just how easy this is shortly!
