It all depends what you want to do - one time only file transfer - occasional file transfer - permanent7semi-permanent network - etc.

If you can describe what you want to do, some solutions can be given.

I would like to occasionally transfer some data files, and update or add software.

The cheapest way(but painfully slow) is Direct Cable Connection. Click Start - Help, type "Direct Cable Connection"(without the quotes) and you will find all you need to know.
