I will not be able to help you, but it will help us when you can tell us which error messages you get (and where (server or client)).

I haven't done this since a thing called cat5 came on the scene but a quick google search came up with this --
http://www.linux.org/docs/ldp/howto/...TO/direct.html
http://www.armory.com/~spectre/cwi/hl/nm-linux.html

I am sure you have done this. It would help if you give the error message when you try to ping one box to the other.
