The easiest way is to configure Samba on the Linux server.  That will make the server to appear to be just another Windows machine on the network.  Then you treat the server just like any other Windows box -- you can cut & paste, or whatever.

alternately, you can configure a ftp server in the linux box. Normally, the ftp daemon (the server) is included in any linux distribution. So you just need to install it and there you go.

Just a thought. :)

Another way of doing this is using the smbfs kernel module. Make certain you have this compiled and ready for use (you can find it under File Systems->Network file system when configuring a kernel) Then at the command line issue the following:

mount -t smbfs //ip.ip.ip.ip/sharename /mount/path

Where ip is the ip address of the machine you want to connect to & sharename is the name of the share. Set /mount/path to be a directory somewhere on your machine (I normally create something under /mnt for this) Once done this mounts the remote share on /mount/path.

You can then copy/move files onto it using cp & mv.
