  1. Is it possible to access files with crossover cable between laptop and pc, if windows is faulty in pc and I cant configure it for network,its still running but windows xp not starting. I just need to get few files from harddisk before I install windows again.

    If Windows is not starting it's going to be difficult. You could try a program like LapLink or something similar that works outside of Windows. If the drive is NTFS then you need a driver.

    Or just use a Linux live CD like Knoppix :)
