please tell me wht type of cable would i need and wht additional softwar (if any) and settings needed to get them to share files.
You need a crossover CAT5 cable like this:
It must be a crossover cable not a straight cable.
Plug one end into the LAN port of your desktop and the other into the LAN port of your laptop.
Go to the control panel and click the Network Icon, in the list on the left click "set up a home or small office network" the wizard will walk you through it, it is very easy.
You will need to think of a name for your network (MSHOME is the default setting) and use that name on both machines and you will have to give each machine a name.
