Do NOT directly connect two machines with a USB cable! There are special link cables that have the necessary components to avoid problems. By connecting the two USB's directly, you are connecting the two system's +5V power together, not a good plan!

i got one of the buslink usb to usb cables and i can never get any of that crap to work on anything. i shoulda returned the stupid thing but i never got around to it. crossover cables are cheaper and faster at the same time. they just require u to change the network names to be the same and then a reboot on each machine and then yer good.
