I have an old notebook running Windows 98 that I'd like to give to my son. He's 7, so I can't really justify buying anything newer right now.
This machine has a USB port, but the only internet connection is a dial-up modem. This seems about right, 'cause I don't THINK he's ready (and I KNOW I'm not!!) for him to have full internet access.
I'm trying to figure out if/how I can use the USB port to transfer some of my old files from the laptop hard drive to my desktop and to put some of his favorite games on the laptop.
Do I need to buy/install any special hardware and/or drivers to use the USB port to connect the two machines or can I just cable 'em together and feel my way around?
