You actually need a "laplink" cable to do this.  Advantages -- easy to set up.
Disadvantages -- it's slooooooooooooooooooow.
Oh, did I mention it was slow?
If you have network cards in each, use a crossover cable to create a peer-to-peer network between the two.

you can also use a nul cable via com port or a cable over usb channels.
but I'd go for the network cards and crossover too.
you can get a kit relatively cheap.
