    Crossover cable cheapest way. Assuming both machines have RJ45 ports.

    USB memory stick gets my vote. Easiest by far.

    cross over cable was the easiest thing for me when i had to do it.

    depends on file sizes and what not.

    burning 4.8gb to dvd could be the answer, would give you a back up too.

    Another vote for memory stick here.

    Or CD Rom assuming they both have burners/players and the files are BIG.
