    We are buying a new laptop and need to know how to go about transferring the data from the old to the new. Is there a special cable or software program that we need to use?

    There's a program called LapLink which allows you to pass files from one laptop (or desktop PC) to another using the LPT port. Your regular printer cable won't work though, you'll need a special parallel cable for that (can't for the life of me remember what type though...male to male i think).

    There's probably other newer ways of doing it that are faster than the LPT port, so I'd look around and see what's out there.
