I've got an old computer sitting in my room that has about 250GB of old junk on it.
I want to be able to access this from my new computer. But I don't want to hook up my old computer onto my home network. (Mainly because that would mean running a second ethernet cable down into my basement and across/up into my living room.)
I'd like to use the "Firewire" connection available on both my computers to setup a little private network between the two. But I don't know exactly how I'd go about doing this.
Are there any compatibility issues I need to look out for, or do I just need an cable with the proper ends to plug into both?
