    are the machines using static IP addressing? If so, create a multiplayer game on the faster computer (less chance of lag while playing) and when the game has loaded and you're waiting for other people to join, go to the 2nd computer and type in at console "/connect 192.168.0.1" (if 192.168.0.1 is the server of course :))

    good luck!!
