How to connect 2 computers in linux.
I am setting up a new computer, and wish to copy about 100 GB of data from my old computer. I have cat 5 cable, a cross over ethernet cable, and a cross over usb cable, and have ubuntu 10.04 on the old computer and Lubuntu 12.04 on the new computer. When I connect using either of the cross over cables, the computers do not see each other. What do I need to enable to be able to copy data from the old computer to the new one? I googled, but all the answers either pertained to windows, or just said to use linux, not how. Thanks for the help, I know it must be simple, but I'm not seeing it.
