    I have a new Dell Dimesion running xp and am trying to transfer my files
    from an old Dimension. To do this I have connected both computer via their
    ethernet cards.

    But I don't seem to be able to get peer to peer working.

    Is there a web page somewhere that will take me through this step by step?

    you need a crossover cable
    then set the two computers to dhcp and same workgroup
    simplest way :)

    Put your old drive in your new computer as a primary slave or secondary
    drive and copy from there.

    yes they can do it that way and take advantage of the extra space but it
    would void the warranty on the new computer
