File transfer problem

I recently subscribed to Pac Bell DSL and I am having trouble getting PPPoE set up on Linux. I have the rp-pppoe install files, but they are stuck on this wretched Windows box and I don't know how to get them to my linux box. Is there any way I can send the files via a LAN to my linux box? Or is there a way to format a floppy using a partition that Linux will recognize? Thanks for all your help!

Linux can read Windows file systems. Well, not so well for NTFS formatted but any other you could use shouldn't be a problem.

I highly recommend seting up a router. SMC barricade is great. Give it the password and username and It'll keep you connected. Then you just plug into the router and point to it as your gateway.
