Crossover Cable Sharing Windows 7 to Linux Mint

#1
I have two computers, one is running Windows 7 RC1, and the other is running Linux Mint. I have been attempting to connect the two computers with a crossover cable and then share files through it. The two computers detect each other on the network, but my Windows 7 computer doesn't have the Linux Mint computer under the "sharing" drop menu. The connection is working, because the Linux Mint computer is connected to the internet through the Windows 7 computer. Any help on getting this to work would be greatly appreciated.
