[Nelug] A newbie requiring lots of help

I hope this is not to basic?
I am setting up a network at home:
There are two PCs one with two NICs
PC one eth0 to a switch and two XP machines
eth1 to a hub and the second PC
PC two eth0 to the hub
I would forget the XP for now I think I have a long
way to go before that stage.
I am running Suse 8.2 pro
I can ping from one machine to the other.
First question do I need to setup a DNS for the local
machines or is it only a requirement for the internet?
I have tried pinging by machine name ie linux300 and
linux800 each machine can ping itself but fails to
recognise the other machine. I take it this is a DNS
If I need a DNS server setting up under Suse I could
use some pointers.
While I am on does anyone know of any courses run
locally that do not require a second mortgage?
Thanks for any help recieved.
For a better Internet experience
