You cannot just split the cable that connects your first computer to the LAN.
The solution would be to buy a small, say, 4-port hub, one cross-over cord and one straight-through ('normal') cord.
Replace the cord that connectst to your LAN with cross-over and attache a hub to the other end of it.
Then attach both computers with 'normal' cords to the hub.
This is it (except for the software setup, of course)!
Good luck with your installation!
