Default Re: Novice Networker

Hmm, the more that I learn, the more I realize how much I don't know, and how difficult it is to ask the right questions. While that article points out abilities, it points out more risks. Is there not a simple and safe way to network two computers?

Everything that I have read so far, speaks of networking computers with just Windows installed, not with Windows and Linux. As I said, if I must, I will install Windows on both computers, but since I only preordered a single copy of W7, instead of a family pack, I guess that one of the OSs would have to be XP, since I can't afford to buy W7 a second time, especially since it would probably have to be retail at this time.

I have a feeling that this network is going to take quite a while to become operative.
