plug both network cards to a HUB using CAT5 cables or you can directly connect one network card to the other using a crossover CAT5 cable.

No hub in home, only two PCs with Win2000 installed, both have Lan Card. If I connect two PCs using RJ45, what software I need? How to setup?

you do not need any software but you will need a different cable.  You need a "crossover" RJ45.

just plug the two PCs together then reboot them.

From both type at a CMD prompt IPCONFIG

You should get an address in the 169.x.x.x range on both.

Then from one type

Start, Run, \\169.x.x.x\c$

It should open the C drive of the other.

Thanks. It works.

If it prompts "\\169.x.x.x\IPC$", What "IPC" means? Which password it needs?

what user name are you logged on as on both PCs.  If it is the same then you can just type the password for the account.

Otherwise map a drive using

net use z: \\169.x.x.x.\c$ /USER:username

then type the password when prompted
