i need some help with a problem .

i have a laptop with win98 . the laptop has an irda port and i want to connect the laptop with another computer(desktop)  and share the irda port , so i can use it from the desktop computer

the desktop pc has winXp installed .

how can i connect the two pc's  and share the irda port from laptop ?                

( the only ports i have on laptop are : serial port , paralel port , and irda port  ,,, i don't have either  a network card on laptop  or desktop )

( i want to use the irda port to transfer some photos from my mobile phone . the mobile phone's software works only on winXP and i can't install the winXP on my laptop because i don't have enough resources on it )   ( the mobile phone software is Easy Studio and the phone is samsung e700 )

Thanks for your help in advance
