 i was wondering on how to start up a LAN at my home.  im not that computer savy but i know enough to stay a float.  all i really need it for is just to transfer files and music, nothing major.

  i have a dell optiplex gx240(XP home) with an ethernet card and a dell latitude cpx(98se) with with no ethernet card. i have dsl broadband blaster that provides my internet connection to the gx240.  i use a usb(v1.0) cable to connect to the broadband blaster.  SO, what do i need to "buy" to have both networking and online? also, can i use my broadband blaster to network both desktop and laptop?  someone please help!!!
