Get a networking kit from Netgear, they have terrific instructions and free phone support.

If you already have the cards, here is a link which explains networking two computers from A to Z.

Technically, you can follow the directions above, but nix the hub.  You only need two network cards and a "cross over cable" to connect the two computers.
