I need information or how-to on how to transfer some of our important data from our old computer to a new one. Our old computer has windows 2000 and tranferring to a computer that has windows xp. How do I do this, and is it difficult?

Hello MHINOJOS and welcome to GtG <_<

you could use a cross over cable that you will find at your local computer/electronics store.

Or if the computers are on the same network, you could transfer files over the network

If you're comfortable opening the case, I think the best way is to install the old hard drive as a "slave" drive in the new system. This requires you to change the jumper on the hard drive. It allows you to "drag and drop" files to your new system's drive.
