I am going to be a new MAC owner shortly (MINI of course for affordability) The one thing I would like to know is this, what will be the easiest way to hook them up and transfer files from a ME machine (yuck!) I have read somewhere that the MAC wont even need a special cable for networking directly. It can use regular LAN cable. Will I have to borrow a router from someone? I have hooked up before with an XP machine to a ibook. But it was very wierd, the PC wouldnt see it but the MAC could.
Thanks alot guys and gals!
P.S. Yippeee the Mac is shipping two weeks early! I have everything here waiting for it. Ram, monitor, keyboard-mouse,MAC Office X,airport w/ airtunes....im almost giddy!

Nope, no special cable needed. Since I already had a network setup here all I needed to do was plug my mac into the switch and madee sure file sharing was enabled on my PCs. That's it!
Welcome aboard and congrats on the Mac! :mac:

If you don't have a router, hub or switch you will need a crossover cable assuming your ME box has an Ethernet adaptor.

it does have a ethernet, so I WILL need a crossover cable? OK thats fine Ill probably just access a router instead. save time and problems maybe...just got word that my Mini is in China, well leaving china at least...
