You can use Firestarter here is an article to someone writing about the exact same thing you are trying to do and another article describing it in more detail. You would need a crossover network cable to connect them directly or a regular cable and a hub/switch to share it out to multiple targets or if you don't have a crossover cable.

Most network cards (starting with 100BASE-T and Gigabit) support automatic crossover (Auto-MDIX); crossover cables aren't necessary anymore. –  grawity Mar 20 '11 at 8:35
