Upgrading from a Dell Dim XPS T600 to a Dell Dim 4700

Archived from groups: alt.sys.pc-clone.dell (More info?)

I am upgrading from a Dell Dim XPS T600 to a Dell Dim 4700 later this
month. I have around 10 or 20 MB online for storing data and
programs. I have 100 MB for pictures. I should have enough online
storage to move everything I want to save from my old machine to my
new machine. The one thing I don't know how to move is my address
book and messages in Outlook Express to the new machine. I'm going
from Win98Se to XP Pro. I would also like to move my favorites list
from IE and bookmarks from Netscape. Can someone advise me or point
me to the right software to do this?

    I don't know about netscape, but try eBackup from www.incahis.com

    Fantastic for IE and OE.

    I'm pretty sure you can do the same with Outlook Express as with Outlook.
    Outlook, Outlook Express, Internet Explorer, and the Netscape family of products
    all have the capability to export and import information including address book,
    messages, and favorites. So network the two computers together (a crossover
    Ethernet cable will do nicely if you don't have a router), make sure they are in
    the same workgroup, share the C: drive on the old computer. Export everything
    to the root folder of the old computer's C: drive, where it is easy to find from
    the new computer. Export what you need when you work on the new computer.

    Pentium I systems do not natively have USB on the system board - unless
    you've added a PCI USB controller card... ?

    But the OP certainly could use a USB key of 128mb or larger. Win98 would
    likely require some sort of driver install for it to be pulled off though (I
    think).

    Actually, I bought a USB file exchange cable and software from
    CompUSA. The idea of uploading everything and downloading would be
    slower than snot running down a wall. It says it is USB 1.1
    compliant, so I suppose my next question is how can I tell I have at
    least 1.1 USB on my old computer?

    If you have USB, then you have at least USB1.1. USB1.0 never really
    shipped.

    No problemo. Your XPS T600 uses an Intel-manufactured motherboard with Intel
    440BX chipset. Its USB slots are USB 1.1 compliant.

    If a Pentium 1 system with an Intel chipset had a USB slot, it would be USB 1.0.
    I've not memorized the details of USB compliance for older motherboards with
    VIA, ALi, SiS, and other non-Intel chipsets. Pentium II systems are a mix of
    USB 1.1 and USB 1.0, depending on vintage. Later ones with the 440BX or a
    derivative chipset are USB 1.1... Ben Myers

    Ben,

    I'm sorry, but this isn't true, at least to my understanding. The only
    USB1.0 machines were very early Compaqs that only supported their webcam.
    Past that, all were 1.1

    Well, there were all sorts of late Pentium MMX motherboards built with a USB 1.0
    port. Case in point... The spec fot the Intel Advanced/RH "Rhinestone" LPX
    motherboard with the 430HX chipset cites the USB Revision 1.0 spec, dated
    January 15, 1996. The 430HX chipset was just about the end of the line for
    Intel's Triton chipsets which supported the Pentium CPUs. The Pentium
    motherboards in many name-brand systems including Dell, IBM, DEC, Compaq, HP,
    AST, and Packard Bell all had Triton chipsets and poorly working USB 1.0 ports.
    My rule of thumb has always been that USB did not work worth a darn in a
    Pentium-class system. As always, release 1.0 of anything in this industry,
    software or hardware, represents a mass-produced prototype.

    By the time Socket 7 reached its zenith (not the one-time computer brand,
    though), AMD K6-2 systems with VIA chipsets had much the more respectable USB
    1.1, comparable to the Pentium 2/3 systems... Ben Myers
