First, you connect the two computers directly using a crossover cable. If you don't have one, then get one.

Once you have them connected, give them IP's in the same subnet:


PC 1:
Subnet Mask:

PC 2:

Then, check in a command prompt window and make sure they can ping each other. If they can, you're good to go. You may want to map drives using the IP and not the computer name:

ex: \\\shared_folder
