    Network 2 computers

    I have 2 computers, and I want to take data off of one and put it on the other. They both have NIC's. Is there a way to migrate data off one and on to the other using a cross-over cable between the two NIC's? What protocol would I use?

    Yes, and NetBEUI is easiest.

    What type of data are you migrating? With pure data files, like Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, etc, it's the easy drag 'n drop, but programs themselves...I advice against using those program profile transfer programs like you see in that Tiger computer junk catalog (what is it, Hawaii Joe's EZ computer transfer utility?) your target computer will end up a blue screening mess.
