Smile win xp and redhat 7.2

finally i got linux working (to a certain extent...). but i've got a big question: how do i get the stuff in my windows to linux or vice versa? since i'm in LAN i can just upload it to my friend's computer and then download it back again (that's what i did last night, but then i felt really stupid...), but is there a more sensible way of doing it?

Linux can read NTFS, fat16 (msdos) and fat32 (vfat) partitions. It can write to fat16 and fat32 all right, but NTFS write support is dangerous.

Just mount the windows partition. Example:

mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows/c
For more info see

man mount
