How can you have a pc connect to the network and connect to another system unless it's got two nics?

Why don't you just plug into the network start > Run > \\print server\print share. that should quickly install it for you, then delete it if you don't need it anymore.

you can connect two pcs with a crossover, you have to unless you have a hub or switch available then you use a straight through.

Make sure you give each pc an ip address and subnet 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.2 Subnet 255.255.255.0
