Bridging between Mac and PC

You have ethernet cables: (networking software is used)
one to one = crossover cable (they reverse three and five???I think)
one to hub to one = straight through cable

You have firewire:
one to one (networking software is still needed to do this)

You have server client:
each computer is connected to internet.

You have email:
each computer still needs connected to the internet.

You have FTP:
each computer still needs connected to the internet.

You have Disk:
CD
ZIP, USB, Flash, etc. (each computer will need a reader device)

You have USB:
Removable USB drive (each computer will need a USB port)

You have bluetooth:
if built in (bluetooth networking software is used)

You have 802.11B G:
Each computer has wireless card (networking software is used)


IN the same building I prefer 802.11G Wireless since all of my 
computers are wireless connected to the internet and can use wireless 
networking. In different places I prefer CD and or removable USB drives 
OR email. Others prefer client/server (which can be built in REV).

The only time I use firewire is when I want one computer to be the 
HardDrive/slave and the other to copy Large amounts of software between 
the two.
