Default Transferind gata between two computers via crossconect cable?

I have two computers with windows xp. I have a crossover cable. I need to connect them together so I can transfer data from the old computer to the new one. How do I do this? I connected the crossover cable to the two and nothing happens. The green and orange Ethernet lights come on on each computer but that’s all.

Hi, SPL tech

I used this tutorial
http://www.homenethelp.com/web/howto/net.asp

It's kind of a pain, Just follow the steps even if you don't know what they mean and you will be transferring files in no time. You can even watch/stream a movie from PC1 on PC2

Good Luck
