Trying to create a Win95(laptop) to Win98 Peer to Peer network

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
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
