Not sure if I have right items

Hi i know i need a crossover cable to connect my 2 computers but im not sure if i have al the items needed to do this.


On the desktop i have a PCI card broadband modem
There is a in socket on this card that connects from the phone plug on the wall.
I have a LAN card that came with the computer This seems to have 2 lan in sockets

Im not sure if i now have to un plug the line from the phone socket on the wall, that now connects into the PCI modem, and now just plug it into the lan card, or do i leave it there and connect to the other computer from the out socket on the lan card

Thanks

to both the phone line and a computer (or to a router), so leave that as it is.

Connect the cable between the LAN cards on each computer, and don't forget that with this setup the first computer has to be turned on before the second one is able to access the Internet.
