Reading data from floppy (on Linux) and copying to Windows Machine


I need ideas of how i can do this.

I have a one Linux machine with a floppy drive. I want to do something so that ordinary windows only users can come to this machine and very easily get their data copied from the floppy to their user space on a windows server.

I want to make this as easy as possible for the users so that they dont have to know any details of Linux.

I would say have two instances of nautilus running side by side. The one in /mnt/fd0 and the other could be smb:/// and you set it to the right server. Or for the nautilus connected to a server I would recommend using LinNeighborhood, mount the needed drive(s) and then setting nautilus, or whatever file manager you use, to /home/mnt.
