How much should a serial link cable cost?

Is it worth buying one to link two PC's together, one has windows 3.11 for workgroups the other windows 98, I am currantly fixing the win 3.11 and need to swap file about regularly from PC to PC and the floppy discs are becomeing triesome.

Should I buy one to use?

Where can I get one(my local PC Shop)?

How Much Will it cost?

Serial port Compact Flash readers are quite cheap and with a Compact Flash Card also cheap - put a card reader on each machine and get a load of info from 10mb - 256mb)on compact flash between the two - or any serial card readers and their cards for that matter
