Network between Vista and Win7

Hi.I just got Windows 7 Ultimate for my desktop, and I need to set up a network via ethernet cable & ASUS 8 port Ethernet Hub with 2 other Vista laptops.

OK, all of the computers are connected to the Hub.Now I have to run a network wizard or something, and I want to do it from Windows 7(desktop).

What are the steps that I need to follow ? Help anyone ?

have you already tried playing this LAN game?
It should work fine without having to setup any network with the wizard.
