What do i need to transfer file/programs to a new PC ? One has a network card the old one doesn't. Is it a NIC and a x-over cable I need or something else, I cant remember,........

and a cross-over cable.

if u hav ethernet ports on both computers u could buy a ethernet cable and exchange programs/files/folders from there

if u dont hav ethernet ports u can buy a ethernet port that plugs into a free USB port
hope this helps?

Sorry peeps, Ive not been proper here. Lets get some details in here...
Old Pc - PB club65 (433mhz celeron 512sdram 26gb HDD Win98SE) no NIC
New Pc - Ei System 5030 (3.06ghzHT P4 512DDR 40gb HDD WinXPhome) ethernet port.
Ive not done this before, just read about it.
What, exactly, do I need to buy ?
Once connected, I run the 'Files/Folders transfer wizard' under XP dont I ?

Please advise .......

I would try another way!

What do you want to transfer across? Data, contacts, emails, favourites, cookies, etc? If so, then a flash drive would be your best buy - plug it into a USB port if you have one.

I prefer to manually configure other things - mail settings, etc.
