I have a new pc and need to transfer everything
on the old pc.I have a zip drive and plan on using
that, but is there a way to connect the 2 pc's
and migrate everything?? Both pc's have nic cards
and I have a cross over cable, but don't know if
it's a matter on sharing files or some type of
copy command. Suggestions???

I know almost nothing about networking, but a couple of sites were posted in another thread lately that might help you out a bit.
LANparty (http://www.lanparty.com/theguide/network.shtm) and
Hope those help.
If you had everything...Where would you put it?

If you have them connected together (it sounds like you've done the physical connection correctly), have them try to ping each other. If they can see each other then it is probably just a sharing issue. If they can't see each other then it is probably a network configuration issue.

I love networking!!!
If they are physically connected properly, then this is what you need to do.
In each Network applet in control panel, have installed Client for Microsoft Networks, Your Nic card, NetBeui for the nic card, and file and printer sharing. Under Identification tab, make sure both are in the same workgroup, my in house network is called JoeHome. Also, name each computer something unique to the other, like mine are called by their processor, i don't have the same processor in any two computers (athlon600, athlon500, celeron 433, celeron366, laptop, pdc, amdk6333, etc...)
Anyway, after you have the network setup in the control panel, go into my computer, and right click on on the folder you want to chare, go to sharing tab, and tell it to share it and give it a share name. Reboot, and then you can go into network neighboorhood and you should see the other computer. If you don't, go to view, and click refresh. Or you can click on entire network, then click on the workgroup name, and you should see the other computer. If you see the one you are on, but no the other on,m eans the physical cabling probably not working right... it is a frequent problem when first setting up.
