    I need to transfer over all my documents from OS X to Windows XP. How do I do this?

    Thanks. :)

    Are you on a network? If so, enable your mac to share its folders on the network. You can do this by going to System Preferences, then click "Sharing."

    Thanks. It seemed much harder since I had to have XP join the network and it asked for a workgroup name so I thought I had to add one in OS X as well.

    this is extremely easy if your XP machin has bluetooth or if you have a wireless router.
    put all the OSX files into the "Public" folder. then use XP bluetooth to browse the files on the OSX.
    or if the XP doesn't have bluetooth, but you have a wireless router the use the OSX to set up a computer to computer network and then use the XP to browse the public folder of the OSX.

    if the XP machine doesn't have bluetooth and you dont have a wireless router, then its going to take more work.
    i'll never buy another computer without bluetooth AND 802.11 protocol.
