What exactly do you mean by this? Do you mean you have windows/linux in "a hd partition"? Or you have them in separate partitions?
Is there a way to move files/programs from one to the other (mainly from windows where I stored my old stuff ti linux)?
YES and NO.
The thing that matters here are the filesystems you are using. As far as I know, there are utilities in windows to read files from ext2/3(filesystems used by linux). And you can read files from Windows to linux partition with the simple to use "mount" command. However, you cannot write files to windows partition from linux if you are using NTFS filesystem in the windows partition. I am not sure whether you can write files from windows to linux. You have to check this out yourself.
Copy files from windows partition to linux partitions using linux ------- YES
Copy files from linux partiton(ext2/3) to windows partitions using windows ------- YES
Write files to linux using windows ------- ???
Write files to FAT(filesystem for win95/98) partition using linux ------- YES
Write files to NTFS using linux ------- NOT RECOMMENDED/LIMITED
And oso, I don't think you need to copy "programs" from windows to linux. They wont run in linux in most cases.
