Someone else mentioned PPP, and he's right.

However, if you just want to acces your labtop, I find PLIP to be
much faster and easier. There's a file in the kernel (plip.c)
with some docs on how to make a paralell NULL modem cable, and
connect the two systems. You'll get about 30k/s, as opposed to,
I guess, at most 28 bits/s with serial lines.
