Hi,
I'm a young (14) programmer. I can't program anything particularly
complicated but I can write some pretty good multiplayer games.

Problem is, although I've figured out how to communicate over a serial
cable, I've got no idea how I could possibly communicate over a LAN. Is
there a library for DJGPP which will make this reasonably simple, or a
tutorial somewhere which will tell me the basics? I won't rest until we're
playing something other than Quake II at a LAN party... at least for five
minutes.

Any advice greatly appreciated.

David Morgan
