    Do you have any software firewalls active on the computers? Disable these, including the WIndows Firewall.
    Some (very) old games require the IPX protocol to be installed.

    For instructions of how to play the game over the network, the game manual would be a good place to start :)

    Ummm, try the manufacturer's website? :)

    Those games are so old they probably use IPX or TCP through dial up...
