You can't use USB to network two computers without additional adapters, 
You *can* do that with FireWire (IEEE 1394, or whatever the spec is -- 
DVLink, etc.), however.

Is at least one of the computers running a UNIX-type system?  If so, 
you might rig the serial port with a getty program (terminal requester) 
so that you can use a Terminal emulator on the other computer to log in 
to that one; then use XModem or ZModem, or whatever protocol the 
terminal emulator supports, to transfer the file(s).  If both computers 
are running Windows, you might consider using the "Direct Cable 
Connection" facility provided with Windows.
