I have a computer with win98 and another with win2000. I have a game Diablo II installed on my win2000 pc and it requires the cd to play. I want to set my cd-rom drive on my win2000 pc so that my win98 pc will be able to use it through the network like it was it's own drive. Then I want my win98 pc to be able to run Diablo II without installing it on my win98 pc because it has to small a harddrive to install Diablo II. I wanna run Diablo II on the win98 using the win2000 pc's resources.
