To connect the two systems without a router or switch you need to purchase a cross-over Cat5 cable. It is the same as a normal Cat5 cable with a different pin out.

Are they connected to the internet using wireless?

If both are connected by one cable then they will behave as though on a network IF you change the TCP/IP stack to static IP numbers, i.e. PC-A is 192.168.1.2 and PC-B is 192.168.1.3 (both with a subnet of 255.255.255.0).  Once you've done that you do not need netbeui.

You will not be able to printscreen on 1 pc and then recall it on the other.  When you invoke printscreen the image is copied into the clipboard of the local pc.  To send it to the other pc you'd have to open a graphics program, i.e. MS Paint, paste it, save it and send it through file sharing.

As stated previously, you'll probably need a crossover cable unless one of the NIC's can convert the bits themselves.  I know some Mac's can do that, you might have to look at their settings.  But if you don't want to use netbeui you're going to have have to put in some static IP's into them as well as the previous poster said.

For desktop sharing you could look at something like Synergy.: http://synergy-foss.org/
