Hi,
I am in the process of transferring files from one computer to another -
both using Win98. Everything works fine except for the files and folders
with file names containing foreign characters like É or à. I tried different
keyboard language settings and also Multilanguage support, but still can not
transfer the files. Also, copy and paste does not work. How can I transfer
these files without having to rename each one of them?
Thanks,
AJS

You probably won't be able to move them without renaming them.

How are these two computers connected?
On which computer are you executing copy command?
