Put a firewire card in the PC?

Do both have ethernet? If so, buy a cross cable (not a patch cable) and you can direct connect the two of them... hard code your tcpip to 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.2, no dns, make sure windows workgroup is set to the same name on both machines, reboot, and you should be able to see one from the other... drag and drop.

Do both have infrared ports? See above.

Do both have USB ports? You can buy a usb crossover cable to transfer files via USB, though I have never done this one.

Direct connect serial with a null modem...

Burn files to cdrom/dvd/floppy/disk on key/etc...

You will need something like: http://www.usbfirewire.com/Parts/rr-usb-047.html. I haven't used this product, only read about it.
