Connecting your old computer to your laptop is actually very easy.
You will need to go and buy an ethernet cable But. you must buy what is known as a "crossover" cable and NOT a normal straight cable. This cable will simply plug into the ethernet port on each machine allowing them to create a small simple network. You can use the "Create a small office or home network" wizard to do this or better still if you have an actual XP installation disk you can create the network using it.
This is an example of a crossover cable:
If your old computer doesn't have an ethernet port you can use a USB adapter to do the same thing.
You may need to buy an ethernet cable to go with the USB adapter, I have never used the USB adapter to this so I cannot comment on how easy or reliable it is.
If you find this a bit daunting let me know, we will have to speak directly about it, I am sure fixya would not be happy about me offering my services directly to a fixya client.
