File Sharing

I want to transfer files from one Mac to another. How do I do that? [9 & X]

There are many ways to move files from one computer to another: you can email them to yourself, burn them on CD or DVD, or copy them via Zip disks or an external drive (USB, FireWire, or SCSI, depending on your computers). In some cases, you might want a backup program like Retrospect to make a precise backup to tape or other media. You can also put files on an Apple iDisk or other network servers and then copy them back to the other computer. If both Macs have FireWire, you can use FireWire disk mode (press T while the computer is starting up) to make one computer act like an external FireWire drive that you then connect to the other computer.
