I have a computer using win 95 and just got another using win 98. I need to transfer about 1.9 GB of data files from the previous computer to the new one. Is there a way to do this with cables, without having to copy data to disk and transfer them. I'd like to be able to copy the data and then fdisc the previous as soon as possible.

Windows offers something called Direct Cable Connection.
This can be done using either a parallel or serial cable.
Below is part of the help file info on this:

With Direct Cable Connection, you can gain access to shared folders on another computer, even when your computer is not on a network. If the other computer is connected to a network, you can also gain access to that network.
For example, if you have a portable computer, you can use a cable to connect it to your work computer and network.

To set up a direct cable connection with another computer, click the Start button, point to Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Direct Cable Connection.

Note

If you do not see Direct Cable Connection on the Accessories menu, it is not installed. To find out how to install it, click Related Topics.
