Just get a lan cable and plug it into the spot in the in the back. Turn on the xboxes with the same games in them and both go to the multiplayer. And then your done. simple really.

Just two xboxes? Get a cross link cable and you're set.
One becomes the host and the other joins.
The games themselves must support linked play however, but most Live enabled titles do so anyhow.

X Box's use standard network cable so you can even put them onto your home network if you have one. Remember if you are not linking them together directly (i.e using a hub/switch) don't use a cross over cable otherwise it won't work.

If you want to directly link 2 xbox then just use a crossover cable.

Otherwise, you can use normal ethernet cables through a hub/router.
