You will need a physical way to connect the two computers. There are a number of ways to do this.
1. CAT5 cables and a hub.
2. CAT5 cross-over cable.
3. Wireless on the same standard.
4. And the easiest way if you actually have to buy this stuff is the cross-over USB cable.
Next you will need to setup a workgroup on both of the computers. This must be the same for easiest use, also the computer names cannot be the same.
Then you need to open sharing on a folder or a disk drive on at least one of the computers.
Network neighborhood will show you if you can see the shared computer.
Then it works just like a drive on your computer. Use explorer to copy and paste to the shared directory.
When you are done, close the shared drive because this is how hackers get to your computer when you are on the internet.
This should get you started…come back when you have more specific questions.
Great advice for green as grass newbies.Thanks
But will never be understood as i can't.

Go to a computer store and get it done.It's impossible from what you supplied that you can do it.
