There are several options, depending on your system, however have you tried these: Windows 98FE USB Mass Storage Device Drivers? They do work...

Other options include:
1) Link both PCs via ethernet (network) and transfer across the LAN.
2) Boot from a Linux Live CD and transfer the data to a USB drive (if you have a CD drive, not sure if you are saying you don't have a CD drive, or don't have a CD writer)
3) Connect the PC to the internet and upload to a data storage site and download again to the other PC
4) Copy via floppy drive if both PCs have a floppy drive and the data isn't too big
5) Physically remove the hard drive from the old PC and put in to the new PC and transfer the data across that you need

The best answer really depends on the specs of the 2 machines and what you have at your disposal.
