I have 2 pc's at home.  One has win ME and the other has win 98.  I have a crossover cat 5 cable connecting the 2 via lan cards.  

I ran the home networking wizard on my win ME box and created a floppy which I was instructed to use to complete the network connection on other win 98 - 95 computers on the network.

I went to the win 98se box, put in the floppy and when I run setup, it says that i have done an illegal operation and then when I close that window another pops up saying that the operation cannot be completed because or restrictions in effect...contact administrator.   how can I resolve this problem in order for me to set up my network.....I NEED TO PLAY COUNTERSTRIKE!!!!!!!

Not sure what protocols are needed for the game, but you can set static ip's on the machines
ME
ip 192.168.0.1
mask 255.255.255.0
gateway blank
disable dns and WINS
98
ip 192.168.0.2
mask 255.255.255.0
gateway 192.168.0.1
enable dns and use 192.168.0.1
disable wins
NOTE: for some games you need to use ipx/spx, so you may have to add this protocol to both machines

I figured out how to get the network set up...even though the wizard didnt work at all...and lewis was some help but it didnt work either, thanks for your input though...it sent me in the right direction.  But now I have another problem, how do I get one PC to access the internet from the other PC that is already connected to the internet

i.e have 2 PC's sharing the same internet connection at the same time.....

I'd like to go ME box guest, 98 BOX host...
thanks for any help i can get.

If the 98 box is second edition, then it has built in ICS (internet connection sharing)
if it's first edition, then you need a third party solution
(ME had ICS)
www.analogx is a free third party app
then
for step by step

You have to configure these apps to use the proxy (I don't use them, or analogx, I have a router), but there should be somewhere in their configuration to tell them to go thru the proxy (analogx)

Simple, run Proxy on the machine with the internet connection; configure the other machines to use a proxy (it's very easy, there's a detailed description in the readme), and voila! You're surfing the web from any other machine on your network! Supports HTTP (web), HTTPS (secure web), POP3 (recieve mail), SMTP (send mail), NNTP (newsgroups), FTP (file transfer), and Socks4/4a and partial Socks5 (no UDP) protocols! It works great with Internet Explorer, Netscape, AOL, AOL Instant Messenger, Microsoft Messenger, and many more!

Does anyone know of a program that tells an administrator how long users are logged into a client machine on a network?
Trying to find out for a LAN gaming cafe to see how long users are signed in.
