2 comp network

I have: Win Me and a Win 98 computer with NIC cards installed...The ME machine also has a second NIC installed. (explained later) Can you give me step by step instructions to network them...?
The ME wizard does not work...says I don't have a NIC installed on the Win 98 machine when I run the setup disk the wizard creates from the ME machine. I know the NIC and cable are good: I did this :
I also have a cisco 2501 router that I added the IP of the Win 98 machine and the ME machine to the ethernet port...I can ping them both.
I just want to be able to share files between the 98 and ME machine with the router disconnected.
Need step by step "home networking"...as ME wizard does not work.
Thanks

please see www.practicallynetworked.com/sharing/sharing.htm
also if using netbeui
enable file and printer sharing on both machines
share a folder on both machines
install netbeui on both machines
ensure that they are in the same workgroup
do a find-->computer--> and search for the other computer (this establishes a session)
make sure the computer names are different, contain no more than 15 characters and have no wildcards and no spaces in them
make sure that netbeui is bound to both NIC?s
use client for microsoft as primary logon
for tcp/ip
Mach #1
ip 192.168.0.1
subnet mask 255.255.255.0
gateway blank
disable dns and wins

Mach #2
ip 192.168.0.2
subnet mask 255.255.255.0
 gateway blank
disable dns and wins

>also if using netbeui

Do I have to...or will your answer network the two?...the link gets into internet connection sharing, which I would rather avoid until I can at least share files between the two.

Netbeui should fix you up then. that link also contains the part on how to set up the network, and the ICS comes later
