hmm.. bit speedy and no real helping reply if you ask me.

anyway.. one way to do it is to setup SAMBA on the Linux machine. SAMBA makes it possible to access Linux directories as a shared drive on you network. Just like a windows server has shared network folders. Only this time it is a Linux machine wich acts like a windows server.
This way you can access the drive with the windows explorer of network neighborhood.
Than you can drag and drop the files to and from this drive like it is a local drive on you workstation (windows).
the setup however can be a bit frustrating

Another way is by setting up a FTP server on you Linux box.

Hope this helps.

Sorry I misunderstood it and thought it was a transfer between mounted partitions.

you can use mount

mount device dir

For Example
if your windows(drive that contains the folder to copy ) is in /dev/hda1
mount /dev/hda1 /mnt

now cd to /mnt and now you can copy the files from this

for more info see man mount
