In this particular case, probably the easiest way to transfer the files would be with the aid of a USB Thumbdrive. 128MB or 256MB should be sufficient.
The Favorites will have to be exported from IE, saved as a file and put on the thumbdrive. My document can just be dragged onto the drive in one swoop. Assuming it is large enough. Bear in mind that to open these files you will need the Mac version of the program that created them. Excel for Excel files, Word for Word, etc. It "might" be possible to export the Address book as a text file from, guessing, OE but that is something you will have to check for.
Once the stuff is on the drive, remove it from the PC and put it in the Mac. Drag the stuff off it into a folder, create one one the desktop to hold them for a while. Open Safari and import the favorites, ditto for Address Book and drag the My Documents to the Documents folder.
Job done, without too much sweat.
The Cross-over cable may not even be necessary for such a few things.
Hope it works for you
MACmini: Tiger (OSX10.4), Safari
IBMpc: XP(SP2), IE6
I'm switching over to my new MACmini from my old IBMpc and want to know how to migrate my personal files (Favorites, My Documents, Address Book, etc.) from the PC to the Mini. I have a CAT5e crossover patch cable cable but don't yet know how to use it, am sharing mouse, keyboard, and monitor via KVM switch, and use dialup Internet service.
