with dial-up? you may be able to do it if you hook your 2nd computer to your 1st comp (with the modem) through a second nic and share the connection. i'm not sure how it would work out though as i've never tried that method with dial-up. the connection may be so slow that it may not even b worth the trouble. i've never heard of anyone using hubs with dial-up. hopefully someone will have some first hand experience with doing that.

I'm a noob at networking, but I think you need a switch, 1 nic for each PC, and cables if you want to play a LAN game.

A nic card is a standard network card. You can get one really cheap off newegg.......

Normally I'd say you'd want to use ICS or some sort of sharing software like winproxy or sygate..but I seem to recall you couldn't use that with NetZero as they had some propiatory dial up manager that didn't work with it.
