I don't know as I've never tried this except on Ubuntu and Debian based
systems (and PCLinuxOS uses an .rpm packaging system), but if you are
talking about files rather than applications, try a firewire link.

You will need firewire ports in both computers (so this usually means
installing a firewire card in each) and a firewire cable to connect
them.  It works well for me connecting a PowerMac to a Kubuntu Gutsy
machine, and Edubuntu to the same Kubuntu Gutsy machine.

By why mess about with a networking solution when usb memory sticks are
so inexpensive these days?
