the normal lan cable, dunno what its called, can be used here. make the xp base the server

and the other one the client. and setup a home network here to transfer files. in xp no
drivers needed whatsoever.

if both machines have lan cards.. this is the best method as anil has mentioned. if i recall

correctly you will need sthg called a "crossed cable" .. ordinary lan cord with 2 wires
swapped or sthg ..

if not, there is another method.. use direct cable connection &lt;google for this.. it is a s.w
u get with windows (98 atleast) . it lets u use the parallel ports.. u will again need a
parallel cable for this.

else, a more expensive option is to use a usb data cable.. if both have usb that is..

usbs ain't the besta options :mg: :mg: plain 'ol simple method is to use a traditional cross cable as shrijit suggested.......just buy some cable and when gettin it crimped, as the shop wallah to get do it in a cross fashion, coz u gonna do it only for two pcs......x'fer rates are quite decent and in fact, if u have a decent enuf laptop, u cud start n/w gaming :mg: :mg:

hmmm how could you replce the exes?? i thought windows wont allow you to do so. you
could be attached by some virus. remember when are on win2k, winxp, these system
have wonder stuff called 'services' used for networking. these services are the favourites
of virus writers.
always install the latest patches/updated from microsoft.com webiste

about excel files opening in linux, there are spread sheet and offfice suites in *linx that
can open som m$ products, but you wonot get all the functioanlity.

what exactly are the problems these exe's give?
if this is a problem due to bad sectors etc..
if you wre replacing these exe's then hopefully u did this by
1. going to dos mode

2. renaming the old file &lt;not deleting>
3. copying the new file
overwriting may not solve the issue, if the exe's r corrupted due to a flaky cluster area
where the file resides. renaming teh old and copying the new ensure tat a new location is

used, which hopefully isnt bad.
try running scandisk on the hdd.
else, try reinstalling windows.. dunno if that will help.
as for linux, it is a viable alternative for win.. provided. .
1. u r upto the task of installing configuring the h/w etc..
2. u can do without some compatiblty with the latest ms office fileformats.
