1. Transfer through a USB key.
2. Use a cross-over cable between desktop and laptop
and use scp/ftp to transfer the file. You need to have
sshd or a FTP server running on either machine.
When you transfer files between two systems, to the
e-n-d u-s-e-r filesystems don't matter, directly. What
really matters is the medium of transfer.
In case 1, you are transferring to a medium through
USB. As long as both the desktop and laptop can
recognize the USB (detect it and the filesystem), you
should be able to transfer the file.
In case 2, the medium is ethernet. As long as both
machines can communicate via TCP/IP, for example, you
will be able to transfer files. It is independant of
what filesystem you use.
