    If you're running OS X just use an smb connection from the mac side. That's smb://{windows machine}/{share}

    If you have problems with that you can always take the easy way out and install AIM on both machines then AIM the files to yourself. You can also try setting up Windows Sharing from the mac and go from the PC to the Mac.

    If you're using OS 9 or earlier then it might be a bit harder. To directly connect you'll need something like PC/Mac LAN (third party software that isn't free) or.... again use AIM.
