    First off you cant connected two comuter to each other, you will need a cross over cabel, or a switch/hub.

    And it seem you are having a problem installing the network card. In oder to fully understand the problem you'll have to post the error message in full. I would make sure to uninstall all the drivers for the network card, remove the network card, and start over. But if you post the error message I can assist you better.

    p.s. Windows ME Sux!

    Is This IT ?

    is this you error :

    Hardware does not support Modem
    Cannot Load HAL Driver
    Cannot Open Stream

    sound like you are trying to use a modem driver for you network card
    Make sure you manual install the software for you network card, dont let windows do it for you.
