Anyway to link up 2 computers?

Hey guys,

I've got my computer and my brothers computer and I want to move a whole bunch of files to his computer without having to use a million disks or wasting CD's, is there anyway to just USB them together or something

BTW, my computer is using Win XP and his is using Win 98, incase that matters

Thanks

Do you have a 10/100 network cards in the computers? just hook a 10/100 cable between them.

Or if you are ghetto like me you can just cut the wires and tape them back together in crossover formation

or pull his drive and slave it in your system. Would probably be faster and all you need is a screwdriver

actually, that is exactly what I was trying to say that I wanted to avoid in my original post because I already have all of my hard drive ports filled and don't really feel like switching them back and forth
