It should work if you only assign them different IPs and same subnet mask. Feel free to have a look on this connect 2 computers directly with crossover cable article to learn more.

Most likely you don't even need the crossover cable. Try a standard patch first. Almost all newer nics auto for the correct cable.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
