    You need a CAT 5 or better that's called a crossover cable. Regular Ethernet cables can't go from computer to computer. Other than that, it's simple.

    ... or get a firewire cable and start one of the machines in target disk mode.

    Target disk more would be a good idea if you have a firewire. If not, over a network with a CAT5 cable would be a good alternative.

    I thought on Macs, a regular CAT 5 Ethernet cable could?
