Just burn files to disc then transfer across or use a external hard drive - simple - jobs a good 'un!

his 98 pc sounds s**t so i doubt it has a cd or dvd burner. its possible though. dont you have a usb socket in your router? i do on mine. the speeds slower but it should work on 98. not sure if ethernet does. im guessing it does some how

What you could do is actually google "Windows 98 Unofficial Sp2". Comes with all updates and the USB sticks will be recognised. It's a good thing to do.
