Did we already tell you not use "urgent" in thread or post titles?

Are you going to give us the information we requested already? Or--is your original question now resolved?

As for your new question
1. It belongs in a new thread
2. did you check Google?

Do you have Linux installed so that you can try things?

You can connect two machines directly with a cross-over cable, or via a router. If you searched the internet for something like "linux networking" you should have found things like this:

One Linux machine running Samba can see a Samba share on another Linux machine running Samba and transfer files to and fro, assuming that the two machines can see each other on the network and the Samba permissions allow.

I do it frequently. However, as I've learned more about Linux, I have tended more and more to use scp for file transfer between Linux machines.
