    what is the easiest, wireless way for me to transfer small/medium files?


    -between a mac/tiger and a windows/xppro machine?

    -across an airport extreme/express network?

    Here is a good method:
    http://macs.about.com/cs/tipstutorials/a/xp_osx_sharing.htm

    This will allow your Mac to access the shared files on the PC and give the PC access to all the files on the Mac. I'm not sure how to access all the files on the PC so perhaps others could fill us in on this. Just put files that you want to transfer to the Mac in a shared folder on the PC. After following those instructions you will see the PC under "Network" in Finder, in a workgroup folder. On the PC you will see the Mac in: My Computer -> My Network Places -> View Workgroup Computers.

    Hope that helps.
