    Sorry but with what little info you gave NO we can't!! You ned to give us a bunch more information.

    What are you trying to network, just PCs? any game consoles other devices?
    What operating systems are you running on each computer?
    What networking equipment are you using?
    Are you trying to setup a wireless or wired network?

    Your main PC would be dependent on what you are connecting and where you are connecting it. I usually setup all my stuff, printer, extra hdd's ect on a desktop and set it up wired to the router. Everything else then connects from there.

    Do you have your wireless setup going yet or what?

    If you do the rest of the networking is pretty easy.

    First make sure all the machines are members of the same Workgroup which by default is generally named Workgroup.

    On the Windows 7 machine go into Control Panel \ All Control Panel Items \ Network and Sharing Center then click on Change advanced sharing settings. Turn on network discovery and printer and file sharing, turn off password protection unless you need it.

    Check your networks and everything should be showing. Setup for the various components will depend on what you want to share.

    More info if needed Sharing files and printers with different versions of Windows - Help & How-to - Microsoft Windows
