Understanding Computers/new computer


Hi Dan, I have probably a simple question. i bought a refurbished Dell on Ebay which runs Windows 7 and my old computer runs XP. I'm trying to transfer my info over. I have plugged the new computer into power source and run an ethernet line from the new one to the router. I want to use the Windows Easy Transfer to get my files over, it's all downloaded and done from the XP side, but I can't find my new computer to run it on that one. What do I do to see that on my screen while the old one is still hooked up via ethernet as well? Thanks in advance!
