Just set up a network - and share the files across the network.

No server software needs to be installed - all intergrated in XP.

Hold on - which OS does it use?

Yeah, either that or use AIM/MSN to just send the files over, I used to use Akeni LAN Messenger, I would send across at 3 megabytes per second!!!

Setting up a home Networking and using via a hub/Router is your selection. got to your drive's properties and go in the Sharing tab. Click share this drive on network. It will become, on the network, C$, where as $ is permissions.
