Step 1 - Are you using a cross-over cable?

Step 2 - Check the LEDs on the NICs. Are they lighting up?

Step 3 - Have you assigned IP addresses to the two computers?

Step 4 - Have you enabled File Sharing on the computers?

Step 5 - How are you trying to access files on the other computer, and do you get any error messages?
