Default Win XP & 2000 newbie

Hey guys,

I'm trying to simply hook up to pcs (1) win XP pro (2) win 2000. I ran the
network setup wizard on XP but it couldn't run on 2000!

Anyway, both have the same workgroup name and have obtain 'IP address
automatically', also firewalls and windows ICF disabled???????? All I see is
network cable is unplugged!!

I even manually set IP address:
(1) 192.168.0.1, 255.255.255.0 default gateway 192.168.0.1
(2) 192.168.0.2, 255.255.255.0 default gateway 192.168.0.1

So... how do I solve this and is it suppose to say network cable unplugged
if it's plugged in and simply not configured properly?

Thanks in advance,

sham126

Is it a crossover cable? Regular cable won't work if you're just

connecting
two puters without a hub. I know, I bought 27 meters of regular cable

before
I realised this!

Also ensure you have the same protocols installed on both machines.

NetBEUI
& TCP/IP are the ones I've got & it works fine. Poeple will tell you you
don't need netBEUI, it's up to you.

Everything else looks like it should work.
