Your /etc/network/interfaces should look like so:

iface eth0 inet static
	gateway	192.168.0.?? --> Whatever your default router/gateway
address is.

Actually the gateway shouldn't matter since the other host is on the same
subnet.  Again, you need to verify that the subnet mask for both hosts are
the same.
