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.
