Assuming you have network adapters in both boxes, you can set them up as a "network" using a crossover network cable. For this exercise I would suggest using the NETBEUI protocol (win O/S assumed).

You may get more detailed help quicker if you submit more detail about your setup. As you see, I am assuming a few things in my comment. The quick answer would be "Yes" or possibly "No", depending on how a "LAN cable" is defined.
