Hello Richie,

Providing both PC's have USB ports you can buy a cable and data transfer software for around the $100.00 mark, this is a fast and simple way of transfering data (if buying from Dick smith, make sure you get the USB data transfer cable not the USB network cable)this form of transfer is probably the easiest way to transfer data at a reasonable speed, just plug in both ends of the cable and load the software and your all done.

And for round the same money you can set up a proper peer to peer network - infinitely better and less quirky than DCC.

Hi Richard,
as Alan says its fairly quick and easy, but it'd probably be cheaper to buy two network cards and a cross-over cable from Dick Smith, and you'd have a faster more readily usable peer-to-peer network.
