Question XP's Internet Connection Sharing feature

sponsored links

I have one desktop PC that is connected to my wireless router via a wireless PCI card. It also has an empty/free standard Network Interface Card (NIC). I recently got another used desktop that also has a free NIC. I was thinking just for kicks, that I could could connect the two PC's Network cards and be able to share internet access for the recently acquired desktop. I'm thinking I need a crossover cable to conenct their network cards and share internet access through it, right? Also, both PCs have WinXP professional installed. Again, this is just for kicks and I want to try and do it just to see if I can. Any suggestions?
