Get a crossover cable, plug it in, dial up and you should be good.

So that's the default in recent versions of Windows? Good to know...

If your PC has an Ethernet port, it is usually possible to configure it to "pass through" the network connection from one connection (the dialer in this case) to another (the network port).

Then all you need is a loopback Ethernet cable, or two cables and a cheap hub.

I'll leave it to someone else to post the details of doing this with Windows; just wanted to tell you that you can probably make it work. However, performance is likely to be miserable.
