Hi

I am trying to create a simple peer to peer network between my laptop and my main pc. The idea is so
i can share files, the printer and the ISDN connection to the internet.

The main PC has the Printer and ISDN card in it, i simply want to be able to swap files between the
machines and also connect to the internet from the laptop via the ISDN connection in the main PC.

I have very little networking knowledge/experience, last time i tried to do this i screwed everything
up.

I could really do with a kind of step-by-step instructions on how to set up the network, configure TCP/IP
etc.. I dont know if i need a subnet or IP address (i dont really know what they are to be honest).

Last time i tried to create the network i used the NETBUI protocol, but i dont think this allows you
to use the internet !! and i some how also lost the TCP/IP protocol that the ISDN card was using.

I feel happy to try again, can someone perhaps give me some detailed instructions, or point me in the
right direction for some detailed instructions?

Thank very much

To be perfectly honest, I doubt you'll find anyone here willing to do that much typing!  You are asking for a how-to that is the size of a book.  I would recommend that you start there instead - get some books etc that will start to give you some base understanding of networking and TCP/IP.  Also, the following has a lot of good resources on it:
