This isn't easily done unless you have more equipment. If your IBM is running NT Server you can set up File and print Services for Macintosh and can then connect to the IBM from the Classic via a network (the cheapest would be a hub and two lengths of UTP cable). Although software is available for Win95 emulation on Macs it certainly wasn't meant for Mac Classics as they are old and have, by today's standards, very limited HD space and RAM.
I'm not sure what OS you have on your Classic but it is probably 7.1 or older. You could try getting hold of PC Exchange control panel which comes from Apple as part of the MacOS thesedays although it is hard to say if it will run without seeing your software configuration and this will enable you to put an PC formatted disk into the Classic and be able to do file transfers, etc.
Remember that there are still compatibility problems to overcome even if you get the two machines swapping files.
