Question can I copy data from windows on one computer to linux on another ???


Hi, I have "some" files (60M...) I have to pass from one computer (Win98 secon edition only - no linux) to my laptop working on Linux RH7 ??
Can I do it with parallel / usb ????

On the lap-top I have also Win xp (home edition) on another partition, but linux can not read from the XP (ntfs ....)

thanks a lot.

If you have some freespace on your laptop hard drive, try creating a fat32 partition that you can use for both XP and linux. It would probably be easier to use XP to do the laplink, and you could save the files to the fat32 partition, and be able to read them from linux also.
