How do I connect two computers for file transfer under kubuntu dapper? 

They both have lan cards and I can connect them using a lan cable, but after 
that - I am lost :)

First I guess I have to assign both computers manual IPs, and then? What 
packages should I install to make full use of the KDE built in file sharing 
(I mean, the System settings module Sharing > file sharing and the options 
that become available upon selecting Properties of a directory in a konqueror 
window... Is there a howto about this anywhere?
