Depends on what you're trying to gain/accomplish by networking your two computers.
The easiest way is buying a network HUB($19ish) and two normal, straight-through (as opposed to cross-over) network cables.

The simplest thing is to buy a router (or switch).  This device will connect to your NICs with standard ethernet cables and actually serve you out IP addresses via DHCP.  A decent one can be had for under $100.  A cheaper ($30) solution is to buy a hub.  Then you can manually assign IP addresses to the two computers.  I have to run now, but I or someone else will post details if you're interested.
