Hi winlinsol,
You could connect them over a serial port and run PPP on it. It will be slow though.
Network cards can be bought very cheaply so if you have spare slots in both computers get a couple of network cards and a crossover network cable to connect them.
u can connect both serial ports ...............
connect a 9 pin female to female  cable back to back..........

or u can make a cable yourself...........  with pin 1 and 3 Tx(transmition)  6 and 9  RX (recieving)
