Existing files on PC

I have a number of files on my WindowsXP. I want to change to Linux. What will I have to do to keep and access these files?

that depends on how you have set up your box. are you planning on setting up a separate partition to install linux on, or do you have another hard drive? what filesystem is your windows xp drive/partition formatted in? what flavour of linux are you going to install?
