    with an electric drill you make the holes where necessary

    You can get away with smaller holes if you use plain cable and crimp it after running the cable through.

    or if you can't be bothered, get a home wireless networking kit. they are more expensive but probably better for the home, unless you have a small office home office setup like a room which has several computers networked in it, like me. otherwise, if your machines are in like the kids room and the living room, or something, maybe you should consider wireless.

    There is also a solution called homeplug that I duscussed in this thread.

    That might be something to look into as well.
