best setup for internet connection AND Lan sharing

Hi all, I have a dlink di-604 router, one computer (sempron 3000) with 4x250 gig drives, and one computer (p2-400) with 3x40 gig drives. I use the slow computer as mainly a storage dump but copying between computers takes forever! Just to copy a dvd between computers when I am downloading as well can take over 45 minutes. My main computer has 2 network jacks. I have both plugged into the router right now but it doesnt do anything. Can I use the extra network plug to connect directly to the gigbit lan card I put in the old computer so transfers dont take so damn long?

Please get back to me!
