Before I try deciphering your post, please rewrite it in a legible manner.

We're not on a txt based forum here, where you're limited to 256 characters per post.
Start by what you're trying to do, followed by what you've done up until now and what the current status of your network is.

It makes troubleshooting and helping much easier than with the garbled message you just posted.
Also make sure that a decent sentence structure is in place. Punctuation, capital letters where needed etc.

Thanks in advance.

Sorry about that.I am trying to connect 2 pc's via a crossover cable.1 is running XP and the other ME.The ME computer can access files and folders from the XP machine but it wont work the other way round.The XP pc is connected to a broadband modem and I would like to connect my ME pc to the internet via this modem.My router is in for repair at the moment and I want to do this as an interim measure while it's being repaired.Thank you.

On the XP machine, make a User with the exact PC login name and password of the Millennium PC (the one you log in with at Windows its start). That should fix the ability to read from the XP machine to the ME machine, if you at least put the ME machine to share files & printers as well.

Then on the XP machine, go to Start->Help and look up Internet Connection Sharing.
