    A colleague is putting together his network (2 Win98se machines, one XP
    laptop, one ADSL router) and is struggling with getting the ZoneAlarm
    settings right. I've always steered clear of networking and can't really
    offer him much in the way of sensible advice.

    I wonder if there's a simple guide to putting together a network under these
    configurations which some kind soul could point me towards? I've had a look
    on Google and there seems to be hundreds of sites, and I'm hoping that
    someone can say "I've used www.xxx.com/whatever and it was simple to follow"
    or something like that!

    Cheers.

    first, disable zonealarm
    next, configure the network
    finally, let zonealarm autodetect the netwok and follow the setup wizard
