    Here's the gig...I want to connect my old win 98SE comp to a new router from
    the cable company. The router has wireless capabilty. I also want to pull a
    wireless signal from the router for my new Dell laptop running XP Pro (this
    should be the easy part).

    Now my fondess wish to to network the two comps together, primarily for the
    purpose of printing from my laptop to my printer that is connected to my old
    98SE comp.

    I read somewhere that you can insert a XP disk in a 98SE comp and run a
    network setup wizard...if this is so, can anyone give me very detailed step
    by step instructions how to do this?

    If not...what is the best way to accomplish this task? I would need very
    detail advice.

    Many Many Thanks.....Mary

    Unfortunately, Microsoft and many hardware vendors no longer support Win98,
    so the help with this system becomes more limited... maybe it is the time
    to upgrade this machine.
    It is not so.
    Upgrade?
