My prior computer (Win 98) no longer "recognizes the mouse" despite the
purchase of a new mouse and many technical support calls.

I need to transfer mostly data and one program onto my new XP Home.

Will the mouse problem on the old one hinder my ability to transfer my info
with a connecting cable and using file transfer wizard? Or do I mere need to
plug in the CPU and turn it on?

As long as your handy with navigating in Win98 using your keyboard, you
shouldn't have a problem, Lois.

If they are both desktop systems, it may be easier and certainly quicker, to
install your old hard disk as a secondary drive in your new computer and do a
disk to disk transfer.
