Transferring files from windows 98 to XP

Got a friend who wants to transfer files from his old to new laptop. Is there an easy way of doing this without too much hassle? The old laptop has USB1 and the new one USB2. I have external drives, flashdrives and a networking cable, none of which seem to want to install on the old laptop. Any ideas? Thanks

Third Partysoftware called Laplink should do this for you.

or

If they have network cards in them a cross over cable and just copy them over, after creating a workgroup.
