Use a cat5 crossover cable to connect the two lan cards on each pc, make sure tcp/ip is installed for each and then run the home networking wizard on both machines.

Just a little more info big ben, when you've made the physical connection between the two pc's, go to each pc and do the following: click start, control panel, network connections, double click on your nic (lan) card and on the general tab select properties, when the properties box comes up, you should see the words internet protocol(tcp/ip) listed with a tick next to it, if not click on install.

Then run the network setup wizard

Or should I call you 'holder of the key' ;)
I think Big Ben will be the network Wizard with all the connecting and disconnecting he's doing - hope he's keeping a log for future reference :)
