The issue is putting it on a filesystem windows is able to read, honey :-)
You surely can copy the text to a floppy, Magusofdreams' way should work, if not, run "umount /dev/fd0" after copying the file to the floppy.
It should be much more easier, as ksgill started to say, to store it to a disk with a FAT32 filesystem (it could also be NTFS, but there is currently no safe way to write files onto a NTFS partition in Linux as far as I know). Depending on what distro you use, your partitions are probably accessible under /mnt. Take a look if you can find any of your Windows D:, E: or similar there (They will have other names, but you should be able to identify them by their content).
If you still encounter problems or are thinking "what the fsck is this guy talking about??", please post a reply - we'll help you out :-)
