You need a crossover cable also called a patch cable. Connect the two computers using this and then run the "set up a new connection wizard". Depending on the OS this could be in different places.

You must select a LAN network connection.
Give both machines a fixed ip such as 192.168.1.1 and the other 192.168.1.2
Should be working oke then.

Connect the two PC's using a cross-over cable.  The from XP go to Network Properties and select set up an advanced connection.  Follow the wizard from there.  You need to do this on both machines.

Just make sure file and print sharing is enabled on each machine.  Also both machines have to be in the same workgroup.

Can you ping it?  Also, do you have netbios turned on?  Share out a drive and make sure you have the same user set up on each machine.

Try setting up a share using the ip address in DOS.  Make sure the folders are shared out on the machine you are connecting to.
