I have two desktop computers: one is vista, the other is xp. I want to connect them to share files and functionality, but operate both with one keyboard, one mouse and one monitor and also keep my internet connection.
I have read on the internet that this is possible, but can't find exactly how to do it. Some sites say that you need a ethernet crossover cable, while others say a hub, but there seems to be no agreement on this. I would like to know exactly how this is done in the cheapest and easiest way (I am not a computer expert). Thanks, so much for your help and advice. Please feel free to email me about this.
