You just get a floppy disk which has been formatted in Windows...and then just mount it in linux...copy the files and you're done!!. You might also want to consider mounting your windows partition under Linux...so you can copy stuff directly from Windows partition to Linux without having to reboot all the time.

A nice alternative is to keep a second hard drive, formatted in FAT32 to transfer data back and forth between systems. I do this and use that secondary HD as a back-up and data drive...

yeah, it's really nice, , that's how I listen to all my music, since most of my mp3's are in my Windows hardrive...
The funny thing was that with older version of the kernel, 2.4.15<, if I left the hardrive mounted for a while without playing the music and then all of a sudden I would play the music again, it would freeze my box completely...it was really a pain..., but now that's fixed,
