Re: Migration issues
Is it possible I can connect the Two Towers via USB and transfer from one hard drive to another, or am I gonna hafta copy to a million floppies, or is there some way to do this that I don't know about?
There are heaps of ways to connect 2 computers, using just about every port your 'puter has...USB, parallel, serial, infrared (IrDA), LAN, FireWire (IEEE1394), wireless LAN (802.11x), etc., any sort of combination of the above, or copy your data to an external hard drive or a web server... Personally, I'd just set up a workgroup between the 2, using regular network cable. If you don't have a router or hub & you only wanna connect 2 computers, you can use a crossover cable which is the same as regular LAN cable except that the wires inside cross so the transmit pin at one end is connected to the receive pin at the other end.
Actually, scratch that, I'd just add the old hard drive as a 2nd HD in the new PC. Then you're done.
