> Hello All --
> I have a RedHat Linux that I need to rebuild, it has about 4GB of data
> that I need to backup before I start this procedure. I do NOT have any
> sort of external tape storage device or internal CD-R device that I can
> use either... so what I planned on doing is using a crossover cable to
> copy the data directly to another box temporarily. I have a Windows XP
> box handy and could build another Linux box if necessary (if it would make
> this process significantly easier). Do any of you have any experience
> copying data from a Linux box to a WinXP/2K box using crossover cables?
> Any 'tips/hints' that you could give would be appreciated. I imagine I
> will have to share the drive on the Win box and mount it from the Linux
> box using smbmount?
> Thanks for any info..
