    Help with laptop to PC network....please

    I have a few questions wonder if you can help..
    I have just linked my laptop to my home PC using a pcmcia ethernet card a rj45 cable and a second nic(first one for my cable modem)
    the first problem is that when i click on work groups on either computer,they take ages to find one another? (but once found file access etc is up to speed)is there a setting i need to change to help with this?
    I have ME on my laptop an Win2K on my pc,when I access my pc from my laptop it askes for a network password,I have not set any passwords on 2K at all so I don't know where this has come from?
    any help will be most welcome..thanx..
