If you connect them both into the same network via, say, a switch + ethernet cables, you can have both using the SMB protocol (at least with Mac OS X) instead of AppleTalk/AFP. You can also set one of them up as an FTP server, then you transfer files via an FTP client.

If you need further assistance, let us know and we will try to help.

Ok so could I just use a regular phone line cable? Theres no Ethernet port in the pc only the ibook. Both have modems. Also, i have no idea. How to use the modem by plugging in the phone line or what number to dial.

I, too, am completely clueless about how to use such modems, and I have wondered about that too, myself. Hopefully someone else will know the answer to that one.

If all else fails, things may still be transfered via more "manual" or "physical" means... (Floppy, CD etc.)

Might be easier to use a ExFat formatted USB device if your TP misses a FW port.
USB 1.1 is a pain speed wise, but working.
Ethernet should be an option if you set up a FTP server on the Windows side like Filezilla.
An FTP client should be available for the iBook, OS9 or OSX.
Maybe Filezilla server here does work with your ME system: https://www.oldapps.com/filezilla.php?old_filezilla=15996

Edit:
With Windows ME there is a built in FTP server located at "Internet Information Services".

ExFat formatted USB device

When using Pre-OS X, then FAT only, in conjunction with Mac OS 7.5 to 9.2.2 (which include PC Exchange by default.
