If you just want to "share the Internet" you just need an empty switch port to plug the other PC into. If there is not a spare, yes, just add another switch. You will be assigned IP addressing by DHCP and you can use the same user name and password.

You might also want to create a different user account for the second PC if there are security concerns with sharing yours, and if you also want to have access to shared files you should join the computer to the domain.

Ps-
If you want to join the computer to the domain (not necessary):
right click on the My computer icon and choose properties | computer name 'tab' | change | click the box next to domain and enter the domain name
You will be asked for a domain administrator user name and password to complete

But i checked, my server admin set some sort of configuration on domain, means i've to set my PC name as he given me if i enter another PC name then Domain rejects my Username & password, Now the complication part is my another PC has diffrent Name so that's why Domain doesn't allow it to logon with same username & password. Now please help me on this issue

ok... wild guess here - you are not *really* supposed to be connecting multiple pc's?

easy way... you'll need 2 network cards in your PC (i'm assuming it's windows). connect the first network card as you do now.  the second one, through a switch (to multiple pcs) or crossover cable (if it's just a single) .

now... in control panel -> network connections, right click the network card connected to the network.. click proprties. advanced tab - select share this connection, and choose the network card for your local network.

on the other pc, set to get an ip automatically - and voila - you are sharing.

you do not need a domain login for this other pc, and it will not be possible to tell from the 'outside; that multiple computers are connected.

good luck

>>"But i checked, my server admin "
Perhaps you should be taking to the admin. In your first post you mentioned "home". If you are not supposed to be using a second PC, we are not permitted here to help you work around corporate policy. Perhaps you could clarify the type of network before we pursue.

put another network card in the pc.. using a crossover cable connect the 2 computers, setup internet connection sharing on the new network card. The best idea is to talk to the network admin and check your companies policies to ensure that you can do this.. The net admin/helpdesk should be assisting you in this.
