another option would be to get a "usb file transfer cable" like this http://catalog.belki...oduct_Id=275561 ....with this you don't have to do any complex network setup etc....you kind of just plug the machines into each other and go to town

Assuming I am unable to find this cable, what would be involved in setting up a two-computer network via ethernet cable? I've never really had to create a computer network before, so I'm not sure what all is involved. Does it matter that one laptop uses XP and the other uses Vista?

has worked very well for me in the past!

Once they are connected, it is very easy to share files because there isn't an actual network involved, in which case XP and Vista would have trouble communicating. See this tutorial for instructions on using the Windows File Transfer Wizard. Much easier than dragging and dropping.
