Direct connection between computers

I have just bought the missus a laptop running Windows 2000 pro. Is there any way I can connect it to my XP system for file sharing purposes? There's probably a simple solution, but it's Monday morning and my head hurts.

Network card in both, linked by crossover cable is one way.

I tried that initially, but, keep being told that cable is disconnected.
