But, honestly, I've seen some species of grass grow faster than tranferring files using a 9-pin serial connection.-Mike
lol yeah i had to use serial to copy all the cabs to install win98 on a laptop that had no CD-Rom... (i may be dating myself now... )
4 hours to copy all the files need to run the win98 install...
Back to your question...
That was a great site ekÆsine Posted.. read that. It has a ll the info you need to copy the FILES.
The quickest way to move the FILES is to create a LAN. Whether through a hub and 2 network cards one on each computer. Or through the use of two network cards, one in each computer and a crossover cable....
As for the Programs, they Need to be reinstalled on the new computer. You can not move programs from one computer to another due to the required registry setting sthat are set up during the install.
