    Of course you can create a network with this setup. The fact that some
    of the machines connect wirelessly has nothing to do with it. Since you
    have XP Home on both machines, the easiest thing is to run the Network
    Setup Wizard (Control Panel applet). Here are additional links to help
    you set up a home network:
