If you dual boot then you can mount the windoze partitions under Linux, but they will be read-only. You can go the other direction, but you need a program on the windoze side to access the linux partitions. I've had decent success with explore2fs (for Windows 95 and Windows NT), but there are other options. See: http://www.itworld.com/Net/4160/lw-01-l ... earch.html or just punch in some search terms like "Linux Windows file copy" and see what comes up.

do you mean to copy files across a network? if so, then you need to install Samba on the linux box and you just need file sharing enabled on the windows pc. at least i think...i haven't ever successfully setup samba working with fedora and winxp machines :(

you could always put the files on a cd or some form of device like a ipod or thumb drive. linux can read pretty much any type of file system. its writing that isnt always as easy. but since you're transfering from a windows machine to a linux then it should be no problem.

Well, I used to have a working SMB share, but since I've upgraded to FC4 I can't get it to work.

BTW, samba settings can be found under:
RedHat Menu --> System Settings --> Server Setting --> Samba

Or, if you want to do it the hard way, you can go here:
