    I'm trying to transfer a couple of files to my laptop from my main pc using a crossover cable. I'm lost, is there something I'm suposed to set up first? I don't seemed to be getting anywhere. This is the first time trying this, as I have read in here this will work. Thanks for any help.:)

    Looks like I figured it out myself. I got it working both ways. Still think I'll get an external HD just for kicks.;)

    I have my home network setup as an alternate network for my XP laptop. When I'm at work it uses DHCP, then when I connect it to my network at home, it shows up on the workgroup with a static IP address.

    With that said, my main method for transferring most of the files is a 512MB jump drive. I just don't think I could live without jump drives now that I'm used to them.
