BUT im having a hell of a time getting XP and linux to network. Xp doesnt seem to like sharing internet connection and networking with Linux. Everytime i adjust a setting so Samba will work, RH9 cant use the internet and vis-versa

I know the cable is a crossover as it works in windows 98 to XP - which is how I am connected as I type. The connection between XP and 98 is fine and this message is proof of that.

Additionally there aren't any lights on ether card.

Also I can;t pping my wife's XP and she can't ping me.

I am going to add more to this post later, but first a little note about that XP deals with interrupts in a manner of its own, thereby possible ruling out cards such as ehternet cards or soundcards. This is probably not the case , but still Unless you know for a fact it does, make sure the hardware-manager in XP lists the card.

did u need to install Netbeiu bgriesi?

like i said i wasnt sure if u needed it but i did for the XP to 98.

I to now have XP and linux all sorted out, well i dont know what i did change really but my DNS needed adjusting, looked at my isps site and had to add a DNS suffix and set linux to get DNS from host.
