First off, could you turn off the caps lock please? On the 'net it's considered shouting....
To connect to PC directly together via ethernet, you will need a crossover cable which are readily available at most electronix and computer shops. Simply connect the machines together, assign each an IP in the same subnet, turn on File and Print sharing on the machines and you're good to go. IP example:
Machine A: IP -> 192.168.1.1 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Machine B: IP -> 192.168.1.2 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway and DNS can be left blank. Also for ease, I recommend that each machine has the same Workgroup name: Right click on My Computer -> Properties -> Computer Name. Ensure that the Workgroup name is the same.
Hope this helps!
