I have two PC’s connected with CAT5 crossover and what I am doing is using NetStat Live to measure the speed while transferring a 75MB file over the LAN. The max speed indicated by NetStat is 14.8Mb, when transferring from 98 to XP, but when going XP to 98 the max is 34.7Mb. Wondering why speed isn’t higher, and why the big difference depending on the direction of the transfer Both NIC’s have the latest drivers and are set to 100Mb. Any tweaking suggestions are welcome.

It has to do with the speeds of the machines, the specific capability of the NIC's, the drivers, and the O/S.

I've noticed a similar phenomena with various machines here, but I've never spent any time tracking it down.
