Why not use the ethernet port?

You can not use a standard cable to network over USB you need a cable with a an Active Chipset like:

I will always assume you are running Raspbian for desktop and Raspbmc for XMBC !

Could you expand on what it is you're trying to do.

If you're asking on how to connect to your PI without using a keyboard and mouse attached to it do a search on headless and SSH on here. This is the usual way to make changes to a network connected PI that you don't want to connect to the TV.

If you're asking to connect to a PI through a serial terminal type program (for instance if you're not connecting the PI to a network) then you'll need something like one of these leads. http://www.adafruit.com/products/954

What are you trying to achieve?

I bought a 3.3v USB to TTL Serial Cable from ModMyPi.
Full details including driver download and Hi Res photos of how to connect the wires here...

It uses the USB at the PC end, the two UART and GND ports on the Pi, and if your PC USB socket is up to it, you can power your Pi with the 5V lead as well (mine copes with it, but I usually leave it disconnected and power separately).

I have tutorial on my web site that explains how to wire up the serial console to another computer.
I also have tutorial on how to install remote access RDP to login to the RPi in a full GUI session.

Go here for my RPi writeup. Basic config, Serial Port add-on etc:
