Default connecting two computers

Can I connect two computers with just a usb cable to transfer some files? Where can I go to learn about networking?

You may be able to get a USB Transfer Cable in PC World - it will come with Software and stuff like that. A normal USB obviously won't do it cause of the ends. Just go in there and ask - they'll find it.

Default recomendations

basically USB crossover cables are not a good investment.

Wither buy 2 network cards and a network cable.. as they are very cheap online

OR.. if you are not technically minded... buy a USB memory stick.. they are very cheap.. and it will acually be useful after you have transfered the files

Two very good ideas! Shame he'll never come on here and see them.

You should have been there when he asked?

Yes, two very good ideas. I think I'm going to go with the usb data storage idea. By the way, these forums are a little weird. I post a question and don't get an answer for weeks. In other forums I get an answer within hours. If it wasn't for the email notification I get everytime someone replies to my posts I wouldn't even check back here.
