Transferring Large Files from PC Laptop to G5

Hi, I have an HP laptop and have several large .avi files on my computer that I am trying to put onto my brother's G5 so I can burn them to DVD.

What hardware/software do I need (besides buying a large jump drive) to hook up our computers and transfer the files.

Also, is it i easy to burn ".avi" files onto dvd?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Thought you could just link the mac up to the PC using a patch cable. My G5 allows you to transfer files from and to PC's just by dragging and dropping the shared files.

Having said that, I haven't fine tuned the settings, as I get a time out and loss of connection after a few minutes, compared to my WLAN setup back at home which is faultless (apart from the slower transfer rates)
