    crossover cable is the cheapest, just run the network setup wizard on both machines and you can access info on either machine, piece of cake

    Or you can also do it wirelessly if you wish but its a pain in the ass to get them to recognise each other then its an even bigger pain when you realise the sllllooowwwww transfer rate
