    I just bought this very cool iMac and now i am trying to tranfer my music and photos from my XP pro Dell to my Mac. i am using Direct Cable Connection with a twisted pair cable. I can't get either computer to see each other. My dell is a work comp and I can't help but think that they may have locked it somehow. I really don'n know anything about network connections. Any help would be appreciated. Burning CD is not an option because the dell has only a cdrom.
    Please help
    Any other info to help diagnose this problems?

    System Preferences-->Sharing; turn on personal file sharing.

    in the finder press Command+k :

    type in afp://peeceeIP

    and you then enter your UID and Pass

    and start transfering!
