If the Linux drive is formatted FAT32 or another type that Windows recognizes, this should work normally. If it's ext3 or another type that Windows can't interface with, you're out of luck without some kind of server they can both access.

WinSCP - you can initiate the session on the Windows machine and 'push' the file to the Linux.

Good call, I'm used to dual-booting, so if I need to do something like this I just use the Linux partition.

or if you are a lazy person (like me), you can always try with windows shares using Samba. Or visa versa with a share on the windows machine and then mount -t smbfs on the linux machine

Same idea as WinSCP would be PSCP (from the same guy as PuTTY, in case anyone knows it). Very usefull and in some cases much better than Samba I find - however Samba is more intuitive.

i have come across a few SSH apps that offer this.
I got "SSH secure Shell Client" from school if you can get your hands on that it works wonders.
I have also heard of the one from the Putty guy, but i never used it.
