transfering file from desktop pc to laptop

  1. I would like to transfer some ebooks from my desktop pc to my laptop, but the website I downloaded the reader software from says I can only read it on the computer I originally downloaded it to (which is my desktop pc.) Is there any way to get around it like moving the files to an external hd then trying to read it on my laptop???? If not that means I'm going to have to keep my desktop pc just so I can read these books! Also is there a way I can use one monitor with a desktop pc and a new powermac g5??
    If I can do these things please please tell my how to do it.
    any help would be greatly appreciated.

    fyi I am using windows xp on both pc computers & tiger os on my mac.

    thanks, Vini :confused:

    Why can't you install the reader software in the laptop as well? Is it a shareware program that only allows one installation per purchase? If so, does it allow a license transfer to another PC? I mean, what if you bought another to replace an obsolete original? Otherwise, you may have to buy another license.

    Sorry, I don't know the answer to your Mac question except for the possibility of looking for a monitor cable splitter.
