Yes you can either get a router (best method) or set up internet sharing.
Both PCs will need to have network cards fitted though but these can be had for about £10 and most modern PCs come with them in anyway.

And possibly a hub/switch?

Although if the router has more than one ethernet port on it you wont need to

Yes I was meaning something like a 4 port router, either Dlink or Netgear for example which would avoid the need for a seperate hub.
