You don't detail the network topography.

Are the mount volumes directly accessible from the boxes concerened. If so do a direct mount using the type 'ntfs' for the Win volumes.

If they are remote from each other then you can achieve Win / *nix connectivity using NFS mounts or SAMBA mounts.
Not very experienced in setting up NFS mounts, and SAMBA setup can be achieved, assuming SAMBA is setup on the Linux box, using localhost:901 from a browser.

Once the volumes are mounted and visible from both Win and *nix boxes then simply do a copy (cp -rf ....).

you can only use a NTFS mount if you are on a dual boot machine with a NTFS partition.
In your situation you should do this on your linux box:
- install smbmount (e.g.: apt-get install smbfs for debian)
- mount //winnt_host/share /mnt/mountpoint -o username='user', password='pass'
- copy your files using cp.

Samba is not necessary.

But isn't smbmount part of SAMBA ?

OK that I have I a Linux RedHat 7.3 box (no Samba, no Graphical Interface) and remote File Server Windows NT with *.tar.gz package on it. I have to copy this package to Linux box. And rest I have instruction on it.
To be honest I did copy file use SecureFX, but but I want to know how do it without any third party applications.
Thanks

LC/OS, smbmount is (of course) a part of samba, ... but you don't need to set up a samba server.
psimonov, if you just want to copy a file and you already have a webserver on your NT box you can also use wget, it will be easier :
wget -m http://myntbox/mywebfolder/
