A crossover cable or hub and your choice of ssh/smb/nfs would be fast
and pretty easy.  Just install ssh server on Ubuntu and hook them

While not knowing SuSe 9.2, it's bound to have at least an ssh client
by default.  Isn't it KDE?  Konqueror will do
fish://ubuntuboxipaddress and you can just drag 'n drop them.

Let us know if you need more help with that.
