irda from Linux to windows 2000

I'm using SuSE 9.2 and my system can discover my windows 2000 PC nearby via the IR port.

Everything looks cool and I even see my irda0 appearing in the output of ifconfig.

Q. What's the next step....? What can I do to start transferring files? What app can I download or obtain?

Install and configure SAMBA so you can list and mount the W2K shares. (There's lots of help re SAMBA and file sharing in the Networking forum, here.)
