Thank all of you for the help
Install your LAN card first. then, for using switch or hub you need to prapare your cable and connector. If you use UTP then cable it in cross over position with appropriate colour schemes of wires. Then connect all your PCs. After that you need to set IP addresses as well (it may be of class A, B or C).
see my post below. i think you will get the answer.
