I have two (or more!) computers. I know that there is a way to network them together, but I don't know how. Any ideas?
First, provide the board with some details like how many computers, what they will be sharing, broadband connections shared, etc? Suggestions will be given as you go through the process. Just be sure to document what you have done when you are asking the board for the next step.
