Does anyone know where can I find a script or some sort of instruction (step by step) to connect two personal computers with crossover cable. I have WinXP on first and Win98se on second computer.

Are you doing this to share your Internet connection via Internet Connection Sharing?  If so, here's a good site...

If you are simply networking your two computers (with no internet sharing).  You need a network card in each computer and a cross over cable or hub.  Plug the cross over cable into each computers network card and you are done with the physical connections.

In Windows, network properties, TCP/IP, config one PC to use 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0 and the other to use 192.168.0.2 255.255.255.0.  Make sure Netbeui is installed and configure the workgroup to be the same on both computers.  Install client for microsoft windows and file and print sharing under network properties as well if not already installed.  Setup local user accounts or enable guest access.  At that point you should be able to share folders and printers.
