Do you want to make your own cable or buy one?

You need a Cross over cable. Plug each end into the PC's then set up your Lan settings. Assign an Ip address of with a subnet mask of to one computer and an IP address of with a subnet of Test connectivity by sending a ping between the computers. Via the command prompt type PING and then enter the other computers IP address. If the pings are successful set up file sharing in windows and your all set.
