    Minimal network

    I have two XP notebooks, and would like to transfer data from one to the other. Am I correct in my understanding that, with neither connected to anything else, all I have to do is connect one to the other with an ethernet crossover cable?

    I have tons of free space on one computer but not the other, and the data I want to save is from Acronis TrueImage prior to writing it to DVDs.

    My asking is pure cowardice. I'm terrified that the whole works will go up in smoke if I don't have it exactly right.

    Were you to Google for ethernet crossover you would find all sorts of encouraging information!
