If so - how?
Other alternatives (w/o purchasing HW)?

Yep

You can do this. The easiest way is to purchase a USB Direct Connect unit. these cost around ?47 and are available from most networking companies (misco or global direct in the uk).
Alternatively you can purchase 2 USB network adaptors at around ?30 each and a Cat 5 Cable.

Cheaper?

You can get two net cards and a crossover cable cheaper than that, and it will work much better!
