Yes, you can network the computers. By using the network wizard you can make a floppy drive for thewindows ME coputer so the XP computer can see it.Heres some links.http://www.microsoft...etup/wired.mspx
To start the Network Setup Wizard on a Windows XP computer, Click Start | All Programs | Accessories | Communications | Network Setup Wizard.http://www.practical...orksetupwiz.htm
If your not planning on keeping the ME computer i would still take the drive out and install it in the XP computer. You will need to set the drive as cable select or slave(i prefer cable select). So far i have never had a problem seeing any hard drive in the XP computers. I also have 2 desktop and 2 laptop HD's in external enclosures that i use for backup purposes. I have no problems seeing these USB drives also.
Heres the jumper setup on Seagate drives.
If your drive is a different maker they may be different. Look them up on the internet.
