I use an iomega Zip drive for just such purposes. The parallel port
version can be hooked to almost any machine with a printer port, the
"Guest" utility installed in less than a minute, and the drive used
immediately, no need to reboot. The disks are 100MB capacity; they run
around $200 for the drive and $15-$20 each for the disks.

Nope. The drive appears on your system as a removable disk, like a
floppy. You can copy and save to, read and open files from the drive
just like you would any other.
