    I have 2 computers and i want to network them so that i can play games on both computers against each other. I have connect 2 computers before using the serial port, but it was a bit slow. i was wondering if there is any way of connecting via the USB. Oh, and one OS is XP and the other is '98. Thanks

    Personally especially for gaming :

    Buy two 100Mbit network cards = $30

    One crossover cable = $5

    and you have a great Peer to Peer network ....

    Ebay have 100Mbit cards for $2 :)
