How to connect to a network 200 meters away with wireless...

I want to connect two buildings together that are approx. 200 meters apart with a few trees in the way.  Bldg. "A" has only a few networked computers and Bldg. B is the business network with about 25 computers.  Security is not a problem.  Please recommend the cheapest and most basic wireless solution using radios, etc.  I just want the computers in building A to be part of building B's network.  Thanks.

Purchase 2 of these and set them for Bridge Mode

That alone should get you the distance you need.  You could also buy a 6dbi External Directional Antenna for each end if the signal is low
Why not look into a dedicated line between the two.
I think you should get a  Belkin Wireless Pre-N Router (http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Merchant_Id=&Section_Id=202570&pcount=&Product_Id=184316). Its range is supposed to be 800% wider and its speed is supposted to be 600% greater than 802.11g. Make sure to use both access list security and WPA with really long and random security phrase and I think you should be in perfect shape.
