(on both machines)
right click on my network places and choose properties > right click on the lan connection and choose properties > select tcp/ip in the window and hit the properties button...
now tick the box that says manually assign
and set the ip address to
192.168.0.1 on the first computer and 192.168.0.2 on the second computer
the netmask on both should be 255.255.255.0
leave the default gateway and dns servers on both empty for now
once you do that press ok and apply untill your back at the desktop
now...on computer1 do start > run > cmd > ping 192.168.0.2 any response?
on computer 2 do start > run > cmd > ping 192.168.0.1 any response?

You may have to restart the machines to apply the Static IP's
After the restart, do Start>Run>cmd>OK>type in "ipconfig" >enter.
That will tell you the IP and netmask of the machine.
And, it is always a plus to have a network shared folder on each machine when attempting this.
