When you connect two directly computers using a cross over cable can you just drop and drag files from one computer to another or put them in a special folder?

You still need to be in the Same Workgroup. Both computers need to be on the same IP subnet. Then you need to make sure File and Printer Sharing is enabled on the computers. Then you need to share some folders on each computer.
