There is only one thing to configure in your case - enable IP Forwarding :

echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

Then just set up two IP addresses :
192.168.0.x and 192.168.1.x

The routes are connected and do not need to be set manualy.

I will explain the scenario.So that u will get a clear picture

I have two networks in my work place.
1. Network one
192.168.0.0---It has got two machines
one with IP adddress 192.168.0.1
Another one with IP address 192.168.0.2
(netmask 255.255.255.0)

2.Network two
10.1.1.0 -It has got two machines
one with IP address 10.1.1.1
Another one with IP address 10.1.1.2
(netmask 255.0.0.0)
  All the machines have only one network interface.

I want to link both the networks so that I can ssh and ping form both the sides.How to do that?.What are the steps involved in this work.Can any one explain in in detail.Thx in advance

Are the all machines in same network segment/hub/switch ?
If yes , on your machine , let say 192.168.0.1 just type:

route add 10.1.1.0 dev eth0

now you should be able to ping 10.1.1.1 and 10.1.1.2 from 192.168.0.1

route add -net 10.0.0.0 netmask 255.0.0.0 dev eth0

if you need first to reach a gateway:

route add -net 10.0.0.0 netmask 255.0.0.0 gw 192.168.0.111

(111 being your router, or the host to route to the other net, if any)
