I am just about to take delivery of BELKIN DIRECT USB CONNECT but before I start the installation process I was wondering.

1. Main PC is running Windows 98 se(this is the PC which is connected to printer etc)

2. Laptop is running XP.

QUESTION= DO I INSTALL THE SOFTWARE ON MAIN PC OR LAPTOP OR BOTH. AND WILL IT WORK WITH THE 2 DIFFERENT OPERATING SYSTEMS?

Has anybody done this successfully?

Slightly confused on what your asking. Do you mean your getting wireless adaptors? If so I can give you some info as I recently installed these myself.

No this is a usb cable connection between the 2 computers.Which PC should I install the software on so that the usb hardware is reconised, is the real question.

I think I would be temped to put it on the laptop running XP, as it the latest O/S.

Having taken delivery, install software from disc to windows 98 machine and download drivers for xp machine from click here. shut down any firewalls you have temporarly so the pc can talk to each other, then follow the instruction book.

Hope this helps anyone thats considering this method of joining 2 PC's
