Cut & Paste

Is there a way to cut and paste programs between Linux and Windows? I have access to the windows partition from Linux, but can't transfer any files to that OS.

Is your Windows partition NTFS? if so, you can't write to it. If you're using Win 2k, and XP also I think, chances are it's NTFS(default file system). You can read NTFS while in Linux. However, if you want to write to a Windows partition, it needs to be a FAT file structure, which is something you would have had to setup when install Windows.
