connecting two computers together
<!=question>My roomate and I are trying to network our two compouters together, so that only one of us has to dial in on the phone line to our school's network, and then somehow through the networking, we would both be able to be online with the school, and only use one phone line.|
I have tried making a crossover cable, and linking our ethernet cards together, but I'm really not sure what else to try, or what needs to be configured for it to work! please help!

As I understand, you need to do the following:
1) Install network cards into each computer
2) Connect them using cross-over cord (see this link for details http://www.cabling-design.com/references/pinouts/)
3) Enable Internet Connection Sharing feature in WIndows 98 on the computer with the dial-up connection.
For more info, see Windows help.
