for some reason, i cant get my two pc'c to network together. i have one using windows 2000 office, and the other one using windows xp home. i am trying to network them together with the office o/s being the host. im not using a hub and a router, but using a direct parallel connection (the computers arent that far apart) but i cant get either one to recognize a connection, even when the xp computer is the host. please help!
