OK, so I have 2 computers, Moya running Win2K and Neo (an IBM ThinkPad) running 98. Now I need to get ~5GB off Neo and onto Moya. So I have my crossover cable, plug both computers in, and they completely refuse to recognize each other at all, Moya even says that she hasnt recieved a single packet. I know the cable is good cause I used it just last week between Neo and Talyn (who's also running 98)...so any suggestions? Hopefully one that doesnt have to do with naming my computers? ;)
