To connect 2 computers without a hub/switch you need to have a cross-over cable. Normally a network cable only uses pins 1, 2, 3 and 4 with pairs 1,2 and 3, 6 on both ends. A x-over swaps the pairs on one end.
Go to a computer store near you and ask for one. Don't pay more than $10.
If you can't find one or it is expensive, let me know and I'll make an adapter for you and just charge around $5 for the parts and shipping. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and put "X-over Cable" as the subject.
