Do you have File and print sharing enabled on both computers, if not, then
youy won't see anything as the netbios stack won't be loaded, which is what
you need to see the other system.

Subject: [kegswindows] configuring network

OK.  I've two computers, both with WIN98, Netgear Network Interface Card in
each, a 25' CAT5 Crossover cable.  When I double-click on the Network
Neighborhood, then Entire Network, I get "unable to browse network".   I
called Netgear and they gave me some websites for reference.  I used
www.wown.com to configure the tcp/ip > netgear protocol and the IP address
that the site recommends.  They suggest testing the connection using PING.
From one system I got "request timed out".  From the other system I got
"destination host unreachable".  For the "unreachable" error the site says
to check the gateway address because the other system is not on the same
subnet.  I tried the gateway address given on the site and got the
"destination host unreachable" error again.

Can anyone help me to get these computers talking?
