if you just want to link to transfer files, get a usb datalink cable

USB 2.0 version £6.46 click here

USB 1.0 version £5.42 click here

If you want to have a permenent solution (e.g. share internet connection), you can to set up a peer to peer ad-hoc net

wired solution, get a Cat 5e crossover cable around £2

wireless solution, get a pair of wireless adaptor, around £10 each

Depends how you want to do it, wireless, wired ethernet, wired USB etc and what hardware you've got.
One option click here is a USB datalink cable.
