I need some help with, or a link to a tutorial for connecting a pc to another pc with a crossover cable. I need to share the hard drives from both pcs to each other, and share an internet connection (ADSL with USB modem).

Both machines are running Windows XP.

Thanks in advance

Actually with Windows XP its pretty simple.
Hook everything up and run the internet connection wizard on both machines.
(Can be found in Control Panel, Network Connections, Network Setup Wizard).

It sets up the IP addresses and internet connection sharing all for you - with little effort.

Yes, then you only need to set up file sharing. The simplest way is to enable sharing for the entire hard disk (Properties->Sharing).

Well I'd actually done that before I made this post. I wanted it to check I'd done everything right because some things arent working right. I can access one hard drive from the other, but not the other hard drive from the other. Also I cannot seem to share my internet connection correctly.

Check to see if the Firewall is enabled on the other machine hooked up to the internet connection computer. That should be disabled.
