Question about transferring files between PC's

I am running Win2k Pro on two boxes. Both have Network cards.

I bought a crossover cable in order to move my MP3's. How do I get the new box to recognize the old one? I went to network neighborhood but it doesn't see it. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks mucho for any assistance...

Make sure that both computers have the same "workgroup" name.
Do you have file sharing enabled?
Can you "ping" either machine?
Are they in the Same ip range and subnet?

Speaking of transfering files. I've never been able to set up TCP/IP correctly to allow mw to see other machine on my network or transfer files. I always have to resurt to Netbeui which is a pain on XP since I have to reinstall it whenever I do a format. I've never learned it any other way besides Netbeui and that's obviously not going to be around much longer.

Do you need to set an IP for each computer instead of having them on automatically assigned? Like 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.2
