MS DOS came with a program to do that. I dont' recall the exact name, but
it was something about a server (check the DOS directory it will probably
spring out at you). You had to setup one side as a server and one as a
client. I don't recall if you had to do it at boot time or not (I had
boot disks setup for it, so I always did it at boot, but that might have
just been the way I set it up).

I used to use it over parallel, but I'm pretty sure it worked over serial
as well (I think I did parallel simply because it was faster).

If you can't find it, let me know and I'll dig up the name.
