 cross crimping
I want to network(peer to peer) two pc's without HUB.
1) I need pin configuration (diagram)for cross crimping.
2)Do we need same operating system on both the systems.? if one has win98se & second Win2k, will it work?

Dear ravi,
There is a wiring diagram for this on the website (click above on references|pinouts). Here is the url for the crossover cable.

The fact that there are differnt operating systems should not present a problem for the [peer to peer network.
