(Outdated) Technology Question

Do any of you know what the easiest way for me to get files off of 5.25" diskettes onto a contemporary, USB-equipped Mac or Windows platform? I have a functional drive in my old 386. But the hard drive and the 3.5" floppy on the same machine have apparently given up the ghost. The computer lacks an ethernet port. It does have a 14400-baud modem, however. I could upload the files somewhere via dial-up, possibly, but I have no idea where I could do that using shell. The U of A no longer supports dial-up of any sort.
