Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I would need some help in sorting out my lack of knowledge.
I need to copy big amount of data between computers, PC Linux with no X, and laptop Windows 7. I managed to connect them with network cable, pings go thru, but not quite sure what to do next. Windows of course doesnt see anything. I assume I have to mount shares and most likely edit fstab. Data will be copied from laptop to PC, windows to linux, so it would be better if Id mount shares on windows and have access thru network places or something to the Linux machine.
scp does not use the ftp protocol, it uses ssh, so there are no ftp servers involved.
As acid_kewpie said, for a one time transfer winscp is most likely going to be the fastest solution. To set up the Linux box as a shared drive that Windows can access you're going to need to install and configure SAMBA, which can take hours/days on its own depending on your experience level and familiarity with Windows networking.
