Copying files from one computer to another.

I have a Desktop computer with WXP as OS and it has 2 USB ports. I would like to copy everything from the hard drive of this computer to the Laptop hard drive.
I wonder if there is a USB to USB cable that can connect both computers, and will enable me to copy the content of the desktop hard drive to the laptop hard drive.
