You could use a crossover cable: Ethernet crossover cable - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

You can also use an Easy Transfer cable: How to get an Easy Transfer cable

Any good computer store can supply you with either.

Are they both on a home network? If so you could share files and folders between them.

Please describe your network setup.
