LInux windows transition. (easy question)

I am making the transition from windows to linux.  In the past i have been sending files from windows to linux via email.   Now i am ready to get rid of windows.  Is there a way to access my files in windows via linux without sending them via email to myself.  I have heard of windows connectivity.. but heck if i know how to do it!  This question is 30 points cause thats all i got...

Just install samba (every new Linux distro has it by default) then you can access the Windows Computer from the Linux one.

If this is harddrives in the local system, just mount them and you will have transparent acess.
