    You need a crossover cable, available from all good computer stores.

    See Fredgs answer to earlier question.

    Here is a link:
    Scroll down to about 1/2 way, for a picture of using just a simple CAT5 "cross-over" cable to connect two computers; under the heading "How do I Connect Two PC's Together".
    It also explains how to use windows to set it up; providing you have two ethernet cards."
