hi

You can use a CD/DVD(RW) disks.

You can use USB/CF/SD (make sure it is fat32 so Lin & Win can mount/read easly)
there is a max file size in fat32 not sure how many GB it is.

If you want to network there are:
-USB
-FireWire
-Ethernet (this tends to be easy if you have NICs, cables, ect)

All depends on what HW you have, how often you want to do it and what is the ammount of data in MB/GB

Personally, I prefer to use scp in this situation. There are a number of free SSH and SCP clients available for Windows. On my XP box I installed Cygwin. This gives a command line SSH/SCP capability and lets me leverage a lot of the other Linux capabilities on my Windows machine.

You could also try setting up Samba on your Linux box but that can be a bit tricky. Microsoft doesn't exactly cooperate with the developers of Samba so sometimes things break.

You can use WinSCP from the Windows box, but you would require to install ssh on the Linux box since WinSCP requires ssh to work.

Er, Samba? Its what its for surely. Allows you to use normal windows file browsing to drag and drop files from a Linux box. Means the Windows user doesn't have to get out of his comfort zone.
