Browsing and LAN

I have oldcomp and newcomp connected with a crossover cable.
How do I actually address, say newcomp from oldcomp.
Oldcomp is using Nautilus under Fedora 1. something.
I mean, how do I mount newcomp under oldcomp or vice versa.
Or, do I need to use, say Mozilla, which is, I think, only for http.
What do I need to enter to open, say, an Open Office .sxc file that is on the newcomp using Open Office on the oldcomp?
On oldcomp I have a directory /home/dad1/
On newcomp I have /home/dad2/
How do I open /home/dad2 on newcomp from /home/dad1 on oldcomp?
I've heard of ip (internet protocol), http (hypertext transfer protocol), ftp (file transfer protocol), tcp (transfer control protocol).
Is there a special LAN protocol??
How do I get Nautilus to open anything at all on newcomp??
How do I actually address the other computer??
Fixed ips (oldcomp) (newcomp).
I can print from oldcomp using the printer attached to newcomp, so no-one can tell me the darlin's aren't connected!!
Thanks for any tips!!
