What you need is a network. You will need to purchase a network card for each computer (unless they already have them) and sufficient cable to connect them.

You will need to buy 10/100 Mbps cards and cat5e crossover cable.

You will then need some software to share the internet, this is free, but i will need to know what windows version is on both your computers to tell you what you need.

Presumably you want to have both computers connected to the net simultaneously - if so, CB's answer should suffice. If they both have modems, and you don't want them on the net simultaneously, simply plug them into different phone jacks or use a double phone jack adapter to plug them both into a single jack. Connecting one into the additional phone jack on the other modem might also work.
