Files from laptop to desktop pc

I would like to transfer files from a laptop (running ME) to my pc (XP pro)
What is the best easiest most simple way to do this....?
Could I just connect the two machines using a usb cable ?
There is no firewire or networking facility on either machine

Thank you : ))

Simplest: get s USB pen drive - about £40 for 512mb - see for example.

Get a USB data cable, mine cost me £8, use superlink software that came with it really fast and easy.

an easier and no cost way!!..if both machines can connect to the internet..use messenger to send files from your laptop to your desktop..messenger has to be on both machines and two different login names..i did it a while back after not being able to connect wirelesly..hope this helps a bit..regards karl
