To connect only two XBoxes, all you need is a Crossover cable. Microsoft has one called the "System Link cable", but, in reality, it's simply a black Crossover cable.

If you choose to use the addition of a HUB, just use standard Patch cables, not crossovers. You can hook up to four this way :)

Sweet, already have a crossover cable that I use to connect to friends to play games on LAN, so will get that out if I decide to play some against someone else!
