1) You can use a crossover cable to connect both switches.

2) Connect to console port through hypter terminal and configure the port. Lets say you want to configure port 4 to VLAN-10, do this

enable
config term
interface FastEthernet0/4
 switchport access vlan 10
 no ip address
 spanning-tree portfast

3) Congiure both ports to be on the same VLAN, also the cable that connects two switches, configure it to the same VLAN, this will allow those PCS to communicate and they will be able to talk to each other.

You will use straight Cat-5 Cable to connect PC with switch. You can use any port doesn't matter.

When you connect the switches together, you will need to use a cross-over Cat-5 Cable. Again, the ports don't matter.

When you configure the switch using Console Cable which connect to Serial Port on your PC and Console Port on the switch itself, make sure the port you used earlier are in the samee VLAN
