I'm very glad to hear you figured out how to slave the drive. That's good news.
Have uninstalled the Laplink File Mover software because it does not function with the earlier Laplink serial to serial port connectors. Of course that would still be the easiest solution, but newer systems don't have serial ports, and the cable won't work thru docking station adapters.
Actually no. The easiest solution would still be to buy Windows 98 compatible network interfaces and install one in each computer and then network them together. Heck, you could get real fancy then and buy a NAS and have them store all valuable data on the NAS.
This would mean only opening the case once to install said NIC (with the exception of the laptop in which you would simply insert the NIC into an empty PCMCIA slot) and thereafter you could fully access each computer from the other if you desired.
You could call a couple local computer stores (I'd stay away from big electronic chains for this) and ask about 98 compatible NIC's. I'm sure you'd find some cheap. Then all you'd need is one cable per computer and a small switch to connect them.
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
