Transferring files between Desktop PC and Laptop

Hi folks,

Just bought a new laptop and was wondering how easy it is to transfer files (music, video etc) from the hard drive of my Desktop pc onto the laptop hard drive? Was wondering if there is some sort of cable you can buy to link the 2 or something?
The PC is running on Windows Xp home edition and the laptop is on windows media centre so unsure if this will be a problem either?

Thanks in advance
