yes you can

you can create a USB network.....you have to buy a USB NETWORK cable !
there is no software required for this

not a USB file transfer cable.

they're only about 15$

...and you are done

set up a workgroup for each PC
right click MY COMPUTER and go to COMPUTER NAME now click on rename this pc or join domain
type in a name for your home network under WORKGROUP like "HOMENET"

Now you have to create a SHARE
right click MY DOCUMENTS
properties
sharing
select the share this pc and type in a name for the share like COMP01 and COMP02 for the other PC
click apply

reboot

once that is done go to WINDOWS EXPLORER
go down to Network Places
expand to Entire Network
click on Microsoft Windows Network
you should see the icon for the name of your private network
click on it and you should see both of your PC's
