usb bridge cable is your answer. Installing as a link gives you file access and installing ans a netword adapter will give you full access to everything & the network of the other pc. Some motherbd, like my asus, have this 'bridge' functionality built in; often called usb networking.

@OP: Did you use a Cross Over network cable or just a regular Ethernet cable?

Also, why not just set up a WiFi network with shared folders,etc?

I have a 2000mbps bnetwork with gigabit cable and a wi fi network unfortunatly as the pcs are on differnt os's it does not quite ork, also for some reason the homegroup function on my main windows 7 pc's does not work. hence wanting the usb cable
