The simplest way is to connect the two PCs via network adapters with a "crossover" ethernet cable and then enable Internet Connection Sharing on the actual internet connection in the "host" PC.

A better solution, which allows independent internet access, without depending on a "host" PC, is to use a router. However, if you have ADSL broadband, you cannot use a USB modem with a router so a combined modem/router is required (or an ADSL modem that supports an ethernet connection). With cable broadband (Telewest or NTL) the supplied modems do support an ethernet connection so a "stand-alone" router is used.
