what are you trying to do? there's loads of different types of 'talking' that people ask about. are you trying to just get a ping, or do you expect to be able to use network neighboorhood?

check the networking-HOWTO as well. it'll tell you all you need to know

also if you are looking for filesharing etc. check out the SAMBA HOWTO.

here is a good link for linux newbies:

You will need a hub and two standard network cables.. or a crossover cable to connect the systems directly.

Do you know how to configure them to speak over TCP/IP once you have a physical connection?
