    If you want it to be as basic as possible without doing anything non-standard, you will need 2 NICs, 1 hub, and 2 lengths of wire. The rest pretty much explains itself.

    right what stflook said. um you might want to use a firewall of some sort, to protect them (i know not all firewalls protect 100 or even 20%). oh, and also an electronic prod stick to automatically shock stupid people that use it. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. i love crazy pills

    If you want to be cheap and skip the hub, just get two NICs and one crossover cable (different than a regular category 5 cable). If you plan on getting more computers together, though, you will have to get a hub.
