If you only have two, then buy an Ethernet Crossover Cable.  If you want to connect more than two, then buy a HUB and buy Ethernet "Straight" cables, and plug them all into the hub.

You will also need to configure each machine with a "static" ip address.  If you let us know what operating system you're using, we could give you detailed instructions on how to do this.

If you know how to assign static IP addresses, then you're good to go.

9X machine

 - Right Click on your network neighborhood icon
 - Double click on the TCP/IP entry
 - Click "use the following IP address"
 - Enter 192.168.1.1 in the IP address field
 - Enter 255.255.255.0 in the Subnet Mask field
 - leave the gateway blank

Repeat this on the other machine but use 192.168.1.2 for the IP address - these are IP addresses for private use, but you could use whatever you want (don't recommend using IP addresses from the FBI's IP range)
