    Im trying to network with my PC. I have them connected with a crossover cable but the mac cannot find the PC. I am guessing it has something to do with my ethernet not lighting up.

    It is asking for the password for your PC. If you didn't set one that could be the problem. Macs generally work better with PCs if there is a password set on the PC.

    Also I don't think the ethernet port lights up. At least it doesn't on my iBook.

    I knew you needed one so I set one yet it still does not ask.
