Linux <-- Crossover --> XP
Now, I am familiar with connecting two machines, albeit windows based, via crossover cable. How would one, if one would want, go about linking an XP machine with a Mandrake Machine if just perhaps to move personal data files....if such files would require hours of burn time to put to CD, which one would like to avoid?
I feel like an idiot asking this question (and not just for the gratuitious use of the word 'one') , yes, and I know the blantantly obvious solution would be to network via a hub.....and one may wonder why I want to do this ass backwards. Thing is, money is tight and I have a newborn. All computer fundage/budgeting has been pulled from IT (me) by the government (my wife) for other allocated programs (my daughter), respectively.
Any info on configuration and the like would be greatly appreciated. And this would be the method of choice until my pennies turn to nickels, my nickels to dimes and so on and so forth.
Thanks! You're all the best!
