Your idea will work if you have the cab files on the hard drive of the computer that works.
You can then unhook the cdrom and temporarily connect the hard drive from the system you are working on to that. That way you dont have to change any jumpers on the drives. The 98 cab files consist of 101 files for a size of 121 meg
Copy the cabs to a win98 folder on the hard drive then reinstall it to the other system
Boot to a 98 startup cisk or cd. Change to the win98 folder on the c drive & run SETUP.

Neither computer has a RJ45 network connection? You would simply get a network transfer (null) cable. How old is this computer that only has parallel ports?
If you're referring to an acer aspire 9420 laptop, it has a LAN (network) connection. I'm almost positive you old computer should have the same connection

A RJ45 or LAN connection looks like an oversized modular phone plug
Just remember, it has to be labeled a CROSS OVER cable or transfer cable

If everything is operating properly and the computers are connected together, now what steps would I have to take to transfer the files from the ME computer to the Acer?
Do I have to be concerned that some of the files on the ME computer have settings that were established for the older ME computer? If I copied such files unknowingly to the ACER Laptop, wouldn't the Acer Laptop possibly be affected by the ME Settings?

You have to enable file sharing. I am not that knowledgeable with networking. I'm not sure if it's the same procedure as XP. I would recommend posting in our networking forum HERE. It's further down the main forum page.
