Hmm, actually I think the best way to connect two Unix computers if you don't
have Ethernet cards on both of them is to use PLIP (Parallel Line IP) protocol.
It allows you to create a small network (of two computers) on your home desk
through parallel ports. For example, you can use ftp, telnet or even mount a
directory. The only additional thing you'll need is a cable to connect
parallel ports, which is easy to buy (cost $5 in US). Read NET-3-HOWTO in your
Linux distribution to learn how it should be set up.
