ie without use of a switch, you will need what is known as a crossover cable. What it does, as its name suggests, is cross the send wires from one NIC over to the revieve wires of the other NIC and vice versa, whereas a standard piece of CAT 5 will run the wires straight through without a crossover because the hub/switch/whatever takes care of that part itself.
