direct cable link between two computers

  sultana 11:13 25 Aug 2003

I use winds xp pro on both machines.desktop and laptop. I want to connect both using cable link. I knowI can use a network card and cable but that is not required.
I have the option to do this on one machine ie network connections advanced then direct cable link...but the desktop does not give me this I need to install this service from the xp cd or do I need to change some settings?
Can anyone help
