"Don't be afraid, speak up! You're a bi-OS user! Be proud of your choice! And, in the spirit of utter moral corruption, I'm going to tell hetero-OS users how to be bi-OS, too!"

"If you have set up your PC for dual-booting Linux and Windows, then you have the ability to access Windows' directories with ease. All you need to do is mount the drive, just like a floppy or CD-ROM drive. The first thing to do is to find out what your Windows hard drive is named. In your Linux system, open the file /var/log/dmesg, which is a log of the messages sent to the Linux kernel at boot-time."

"Using the Samba sever is another excellent way of connecting to Windows PCs that you might be networked to.

I strongly recommend you go out and read the Samba series of help files written by Ying Zhang."
