what have you tried so far?
have you set static ip addresses on the computers? (if you don't know what i mean...you probably didn't)

on each computer can you press start, then run, then type "cmd" (without quotes), then type "ipconfig /all" (again...no quotes) and then post the results from both machines?

What is the reason for you to connect a crossover cable between two machines?

Transferring files? Internet Connection Sharing? Please let me know...

If so.. check out these two links for more help on these two topics...
