    You can buy a starter network kit for around 35 quid now.

    If the machines are in different rooms then i'd defo suggest wireless. :)

    I can't think of any kits.

    I would buy Wireless Router, PCMCIA or USB wireless device for the laptop, and either 2 USB devices or PCI cards for the computers.

    PCMCIA and PCI cards for the win. USB takes process time and is therefore not ideal for networking.
