    I'm going to be running the files and settings transfer wizard for a friend. The old PC is running 98 and the new PC XP. We're going to transfer the files using his home network.

    My question is, can I use CD-R(s) in place of the flopping for the migration of the files and settings?

    Yes you can . . but in a round-about way . . first save the file to a place on your hard drive, then burn that file to cd.
