Yup!  You need a "null-ethernet" cable.

On one end, switch wires 1&2 with wires 3&6.  This crosses the TX pair with the RX pair, so the computers can talk properly.  Wires 4,5,7&8 are unused.

I agree with aesop, unless you have the tools, purchase from an expert. However, if you are interested, with regard to the answer posted from bcwhite, more details may be found at: http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/J_Helmig/thisted.htm#crossed
