You want to use TCP/IP. Choose a private network to use (basically
192.168.<favourite number>.xxx) and assign numbers to your machines.
I could have used 192.168.42.1, 192.168.42.2 and 192.168.42.3. Edit
/etc/init.d/network on Linux, and use the Network control panel under
Win95 to assign the address manually. Bind Microsoft Networking to
Install Samba on Linux.
You should be able to ping your systems from each other, e.g. `ping
192.168.42.2' to see if the network is going.
