Actually, until Windows 98 finally died (perhaps ME?), I always did at 
least a week as windows 98 did not expire its local cache. Things were 
usually good after a week because windows 98 boxes tended to crash by 
then. I still allow several days for moves between servers, though. 
Never know what people are doing that they shouldn't.:)
