How to? Connect 2 PC's without router?

I have(finally) replaced my Gateway 200Mhz with a Dell 3Ghz. Now my question is I have about 1Gig of stuff I'd like to move over to the Dell but not sure how to. The Gateway does not have a CD burner and the floppy doesn't work, although it does have ethernet and USB capabilities. I have a Motorola SB4200 Cable Modem. Both PC's will connect fine to it, but not at the same time. The Gateway is Windows 98 2nd edition and the Dell is XP SP2. I have no need for a home network and once I get the data I want off the Gateway I will probably give it away or .....? Sooo, is a cheap router the easiest way to do this? Are there any ftp sites where I could upload a couple hundred Mb's at a time to download to the Dell. Can I do USB to USB connection? Any help or suggestion would be much appreciated! Thanks much!
