my home computer is running xp and so is my laptop but i would in the future would like to run a webserver on which i would like to host a website too, so i would like any information if possible how i go about this.
so just to recap i have 1 desktop machine running xp
one laptop running xp with a lan card and wireless ntework card
i also have one wireless router
currently my internet broadband connection is connected to my router and hence can use internet on my laptop through wireless card

i would like to share files between both computers and would like an internet connection on both and would also like to connect one printer to the network.
