Transferring files between two computers via Firewire

One of the quickest solutions to transfer files is to plug both computers up with Firewire. Firewire 400 gives 400Mbps while 800 gives 800Mbps. This is about 20-50x the speeds from a network transfer.
All you have to do is assign IPs internal to your network, connect them up and there you go, with quicker than quick file sharing.
This is on the assumption that you have firewire ports in your computers, but both MacOS X and Windows XP support firewire natively. You shouldn’t have an issue.
