I have done that some years ago, linking two computers with Windows 95.
You will need (obviously) two modems, and one or both computers can be configured to accept calls from the other.
From the computer that makes the call it looks like it is connecting to some ISP, because the work is the same, the biggest difference is that you can
share files directly over that connection without worrying with other people accessing the files.
But the speed will be much slower than what you get with cable or ADSL.
As I do not remember exactly how it is done, if you want more information just ask, I am sure I will remember things as I go.
