    with prices being so low... just get 10/100 cards (big names [xircom, 3com etc] are always better for instant o/s detection).

    it is cheaper to link them instead of usb cable (which is even slower)... you'll also need a cat5e crossover cable (length depends on you). It's a doddle to set up and should cost you more then £30 all in.

    another option is to get a 2.5" hdd usb caddy.... use your existing hdd or get another one (eg 6GB for £25).... then transfer onto your other pc... but it is slower. usb can take its time.
