Duncan gave some good info. TCP/IP is the way to go, since I'm AppleTalk
was taken out as a protocol starting with Windows 2000.
As for sharing the files, FTP is probably the easiest option. There are a
lot of free FTP servers to install for either Windows or Mac. Just think of
the files you are sharing as web pages to publish to the other computer.
<grin> FTP is much easier to deal with and set up than Samba.
PS On a side note, what brands does the dealership you work for sell? I
remember Volvo and Mazda, but wasn't sure if VW was one as well.

Can anyone direct me to what I need to do network a PC running
Windows 2000 (laptop with a built in Ethernet) to MAC OS 9 or 10? I
only want to connect the two together using a crossover cable to do
some file transfers/sharing.
One meets his destiny often in the road he takes to avoid it.
