Need Help Connecting two computers together

I have read a lot of the posting about connecting two computers together, but I am still puzzle.
I have two computers that I want to connect together so that I can use to exchange files between them.
The computers are sitting side by side and they are desktop Micro-Towers.
First one computer is a 1.60 gig intel pentium 4 with operating system windows 98 SE (build 4.10.2222). It has 20 gig hard drive and Toshiba DVD-RM [CD-ROM Drive]
Memory Modulesis 96 megabytes installed memory.
Second computer and the one I use all the time. It is a Gateway, processor 867 megahartz intel pentium III with 40 gig Hard Drive an Memory Modules 512 Megabytes installed memory. It has a Matshita DVD-ROM Sr-8586 and Lite-On CD-RW [CD-ROM Drive]
I went to BEST-BUY Store and the clerk told me I could connect the both of them using a Cat-6 RJ-45 Crossover Cable. I purchased the cable and I have it here at home. My Internet connection is Cable and I also have a Linksys Wireless-G 2.4 GHz Broadband Router which my to children use to connect their laptops to the internet.
Now I am asking anyone for step by step instruction on How to connect the two desktop computers together so I can share data between them.
Thank You for your help
