Default Windows Movie Maker. How can I transfer to another computer WITH the pictures?

So I'm making a slideshow that's about 16 minutes long. It contains a slew of pictures and a few video fragments too. I did this on my laptop, which is running XP Pro SP2. I have a shared folder on my laptop that I have mapped on my desktop, also running XP Pro SP2. Due to the fact my desktop is primarily Linux, I don't have my 14 gig worth of random pictures on my Windows partition on the desktop that would be included in the actual slideshow.

Well, a friend is coming over later to help me out with it and I would prefer working on it on my big screen for my desktop as opposed to my laptop, however when I transfer the file-in-progress over (the video is not finalized) all of the pictures come up as red X's.

How can I transfer the "in progress" file of movie maker over ALONG with all of the data in the collections folder so I can resume construction of this show on my desktop?

After I finish it, can I go in later and edit it by adding more pictures to it?

Would you by chance have an explanation as to why movie maker locks up every 5 minutes and forces me to quit and reopen it?

I gotta admit, this is training me to constantly save my data. Every little change I make I'm hitting CTRL S. But... the training is getting old now. Now I just want the darn program to work. In fact, as I type this I'm letting movie maker go for a couple minutes hoping it somehow works again so I don't have to end the non responding process AGAIN.

ITS A NEW RECORD! MOVIE MAKER LASTED 15 MINUTES!

I posted this response @ 1:10
It's 1:25. It froze again.
