    A computing challenge


    I need to mirror a hard drive on an old machine but all I have to do it is a parallel lead. Is it possible to do it this way?

    I have no clue of how to answer your question, but maybe you would find somebody who did if you put in a more descriptive subject.

    If you have Symantic Ghost you can transfer the drive image using a parallel cable:

    If you just want to copy some files and folders over a parallel cable use:

    good luck,

    AAAARRRRRGGGGGGHHHH


    I've managed to create a connection with the tools included with each OS - Windows 2000 machine is the host and Win XP home is the user. The user has connected successfully.

    Now, how the Hell to I copy files from the Win 2000 machine using the XP Home machine? I can see no way to access the Win 2000 machine.

    Ok I found out you can't share files between two PCs this way. I now need to allow the PC connecting to my Laptop to connect to the internet THROUGH my laptop. Is this possible?
