Re: connecting a Mac to a PC

use ethernet (twisted or not)
run a ssh-server on the debian box (it should be running per default -
check with: ps ax |grep sshd)
get a ssh client for the windoze box (i use pscp  - search using google)
start the client an the windoze box and transfer your files

bye clemens

PS: there are other ways to eg: ftp - the risk of your data getting
sniffed is very low if you direct-connect your boxes ;-)
