Just go into my computer, click the button to go to my network places and click set up a home or office network. Just follow the on screen instructions it is pretty easy to do if you read the wizard.

Make sure it isn't just an Ethernet cable , but a Crossover Ethernet cable , works in a slightly different way and allows 2 pc's to connect peer to peer .
