What error does it give? What operating systems are you both using? Any firewalls installed?

Make sure you are using a crossover cable to connect the 2 pc's together, a regular ethernet cable will not work. Enable "Internet Connection Sharing" (ICS) on the main computer with the internet and as long as there are no firewalls blocking you should be able to connect with the client computer. You do not need to run Netwok Setup Wizard in order to share internet access. If you want to also setup a network and share files amongst eachother then you need to run the setup wizard. Or just make sure both pc's are joined to the same workgroup name and have the same account created on each computer.
