Can anyone let me know an idiots guide to connecting two computers via a networking cable?? I've read the help files on my Vista machine and am confused?!

I want to transfer all my pictures and videos etc to my new machine (the reason I've not just swapped th HDD over is the XP machine has PATA and the Vista SATA).

One PC is running XP SP2 and the other Vista Home Premium.

Thanks.

You will a crossover cable rather than a standard patch cable to do this unless you have a router.
