In order to network two '98 PCs do I just need a NIC in each computer and the CAT-5 running between the two computers? Will the computer w/o the modem be able to access the internet through the computer w/the modem?
My other problem is this: The computers are in different buildings that are about 30ft apart. Digging a hole and running CAT-5 between the two isn't a problem, or is it? Is lightning a real issue? Would a wireless option be a better idea?
Any help/suggestions very appreciated.
