Buy two ethernet Nic's, unless you already have them installed and buy a ethernet cross-over cable and now your in business.

Before you do this look up "Direct Cable Connection overview" in Windows Help and read along. There are many ways to directly connect 2 PCs; only one of them requires you install NICs to them.
