I want to transfer files between my desktop and laptop. My primary computer is the desktop using Windows XP Professional. I just purchased a laptop that uses Windows Vista Home Premium. I bought a crossover cable to transfer files between the two, but have had no luck with any of this. I've tried changing the IP addresses in both computers to be very similiar. They are both labeled "Workgroup". I'm not very good with Vista yet, so take that into consideration. I don't want to buy some $50-$60 software program to guide me step by step...although I might have to if I can't resolve this! If you can help I'd appreciate it, thanks!
