Hey blair again

You try to easy tranfer from one machine to another? is it thru a router? if not you will need a null modem (crossover cable) I am not sure that importing from one machine to another is really a good idea. You will be importing data that is specific to the other machine and not the one you are importing it to

No need for a switch, a crossover cable is fine

Bliar, if you have gigabit nics a cat 6 cable would get you a bunch more speed.

Actually, Cat 5e handles gigabit connections to their full potential so that's cool.
