Re: Need Creative Method to transfer a file

reboot into linux and install it?


Sorry; I left out some info. What started this was a power outage. Windows is REALLY hosed. When I said I booted into her Windows side, what I really meant was that I booted into DOS on her Windows side. I tried using Windows, but it's going to have to be reinstalled. So that's not an option currently.

The uuencode idea sounds interesting. Thanks for the hint!


I installed mgetty on the laptop, and plugged it into Mom's second phone line. Using this method, I was able to fire up minicom on Mom's computer and dial-in and log on to my laptop. But Kermit is not installed on Mom's, and none of the Ctrl-Z,A,R file-transfer options worked for me.
