Hi. My husband bought a new PC two years ago (Windows XP, I think) and for reasons I won't go into here, it's still in the box. Meanwhile we've both been using my 8-yr-old system that runs on Windows 98.
We're finally going to join the new millennium and ditch dial-up. I want to connect the "new" system at the same time. However, I have a real block/fear when it comes to copying/moving all those years worth of files, photos, etc. from the old system to the new.
My question: are there cables available that would allow me to connect the keyboard, mouse, monitor and printer to BOTH towers? Until I get up the nerve and spend the time moving everything, we could use the new system for the most part but still have access to the old when necessary.
If all else fails I know I can just place the towers side by side in an easy-to-get-to-spot, and plug into one or the other as needed, but it would be much easier to be connected to both and just power-up whichever one we'd be using.
Thanks for any help you can give me!
