You need to set up Samba on your Mandrake box. Maybe this can help.

You also setup an ftp server on linux and transfer files that way. If you have sshd already running ( ps -A |grep sshd ), then you should just be able to use an sftp client on windows to send and receive files to and from the linux box.

Heh, I didn't realise you could use SSH with FTP. This is useful for me, thanks dduardo! :smile:
