Quick and dirty,

Manually plug in the IP's, and 0.2, Subnet of
and no gateway/router IP.

Turn on Windows File Sharing on the Mac.
Turn on File Sharing on the PC.

Use Command-K on the Mac to open a share on the PC, ie: cifs://192.168.0.x/c$

on the PC, Start > Run type in \\192.168.0.x\username
QUOTE Thanks
