XP D/T & L/T networked OK - How do I link Games between both ?

XP D/T & L/T networked OK - How do I link Games between both ?

I have succeeded in networking and sharing files and printer between my XP Pro d/t and l/t.

Both achieve Web access through a DSL modem and Linksys router to the NIC card on the d/t and thence by wireless to the laptop.

I would like to share games between both PC's so that two people may play interactively using these PC's.

Initially I would like to experiment with the game Quake 111 but have no idea how to set this up.

When playing this game on a single PC , for instance , it is necessary to insert the Quake 111 CD . Do I now require two CD's , one for each machine to play this interactively.
