Either your hardware supports it and automatically crosses out the
ethernet port or it doesn't. That totally depends on what kind of NIC
you're using, and it's basic network hardware stuff...

Yeah, connecting both directly is your best bet in any case. But, as I
said, the cable either needs to be crossed out (i.e. have a different
order of cable colors on both plugs), your NIC has to do it (dunno if
the NSLU2's ethernet port does it) or you need a small adapter to cross
out the connection...
