After installing NICs and connecting both PCs to the hub, or together with a crossover cable, ensure that you have assigned both machines to the same workgroup.  If you are using TCP/IP, make sure the computers are on the same network (192.168.1.xxx for example).  You may also need to have netbios loaded.  The preceeding tasks are completed on the Network Control Panel.

Additionally, if you want to share files or printers, you must turn that option on as well in the Network control panel.

If you need step-by-steps, let me know.

Are you using a hub or cross-over cable?  Sounds like you are just doing a workgroup.

On each machine
- Go to Network Neighborhood
- Right click and go to properties
- Add the service for file and printer sharing
- You want to log onto client for microsoft networks
- Under the identification tab make sure that each workstation has a different name, but that the workstations are the same

- Reboot
- Enter a username and password
- To share a file or folder right click, select sharing and give it the parameters you want.

Check your network neighborhood and look at the pretty shares.
