File and Settings Transfer Wizard with Windows XP

  jjggdd 19:05 17 Nov 2007

This is my first posting so please excuse if these problems appear elsewhere.
I have just bought a new PC with Windows XP and have been trying to migrate
data, documents and settings from my old PC (also with Windows XP). I have
bought a null modem serial PC to PC 9 pin cable to do this but a) cannot get
the PC's to recognise that they are linked and b) on the new PC F.A.S.T.
wizard the Direct Cable button on the 'Where are the files and settings'
window is in relief and cannot be selected.
I've checked all the obvious things. Any help gratefully accepted.
