Hi Enrique,
You just have to make sure the computers are on the same subnet. So if 
you give one IP number and the other use subnet

You may have to use a crossover cable if you're going to connect them 
directly with a single ethernet cable between the two. However, I think 
most recent macs have crossover detection so they detect when a 
crossover is needed and adjust themselves accordingly. If you go through 
a hub you don't need crossover cables.
