The 'popular' and 'conventional' solution is connect them through a network. Yes, two computers can hook together into a network. But, I am sure you don't want that.

Another way, use a 'link' cable (any computer store has it). They come in two flavors: you can connect them through a COM port or LPT port (most people use LPT).
Then you can use 'Direct Cable Connection' from Windows 95 to hook up. But note this, in direct connection, one computer will be a client, the other server. That means, only one computer can access the other at a time. If you want the other way, each computer has to change role (unlike networking, both computers can access each other simultaneously.
