XP and ME Networking

Hi...
I have an xp-pro box with a Sis 900-based PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter(motherboard).
it was lighting brown so i plugged a NIC Fast Ethernet PCI Familia RTL8139 de Realtek
and its lighting green on both.
The other box is a laptop dell inspiron 3800 with "ME" i have an SCSI ethernet adapter (on device manager appears like "CardBus 10/100Mbps Ethernet Card")
i have a modem dial up on the laptop and i want to share internet...so it have to be the host (the ME box)
i configured both....i used the wizard of XP box
and used the XP Wizard disk on ME too.

i have cheked the guess box on xp.....
=========================
the workgroup on both is REDKS.

i installed NetBEUI on both because i read somewhere it was the way xp and me can see each other.
but when i go to the "my network places"-"Entire Network"-"Redks" i just can see the machine im working on.

Obviously i cant make ping.

Note: i had zonealarm installed on ME box but i uninstalled it also the firewall
that brings XP

If you are using the crossover, try forcing the NIC's to 10mbit, half duplex (for trouble shooting)
if it then works, force to 100mbit, half, and if it still works, try 100mbit, full duplex
