Default Combining Power?

Hi all, i got a question (wich i doubt will work...)

Ok, so I have a spare PC that I built a while ago from some extra parts I had. It has a VIA C3 Processor @ 733mhz, 256mb SDRAM @ 133 mhz... Um ya, not the best system around, i know. So anyways, I was wondering if I could somehow share its power with the PC I use for gaming, wich is not to bad but could be better. I don't mean hard drive space, but actual RAM and processing power, so the second crappy PC would help out my PC
to processes data, AKA sharing a processor &/or RAM? I have no
idea if this is even possible, maybe through a network link or something... Anyone tried this or have some tips?

Oh and here are the stats for the systems:

Crap System:

<-Forget Name of Motherboard->

Intergrated VIA C3 Processor @ 733 mhz,
256mb SDRAM @ 133mhz
Intergrated Video, forget name or speed, but it is crap
10 gb hardrive
(scrapped from my XBOX after installing an 80gb in there )

CD Drive & Floppy
Intergrated Ethernet

My System:

Asus 478 motherboard, dont feel like checking name...
P4 socket 478 processor @ 1.7 ghz
512mb DDRAM @ 233mhz
ATI Radeon 9200 SAPHIRE SE, Engine overcklocked to
230 mhz, RAM to 185 mhz
Lots of ethernet (3 PCI Cards, 1 intergrated, 1 USB)
CD Burner
40 gb hard drive
