I'm hoping you can help me out in getting brushed up on an area of Linux that I've not yet had the opportunity to study much. I am an intermediate/advanced user but I have a feeling I'm going to be needing this at work soon.
OK, so I have my Linux machine sitting next to me. Standard DNS/Mail/Webserver setup with static IP, configured with a domain. No problems there. I have my XP box sitting next to me with a 40 gig hard drive that is near capacity.
I need to free up some space on this drive, and a good 30 gigs of this data I would like to move over to my Linux system anyway.
What would be the quickest, and easiest way for this to happen? Could someone kindly point me in the right direction?

True. I have an FTP server installed. I just don't particularly like the idea of having to upload 30something gigs of sh*t through FTP. Sounds like it would take awhile.
It'll take a while whether you are using FTP or SMB. I personally don't like the idea of copying stuff through SMB, and the pain of recovering if something fails (which is relatively easy with a decent FTP client).
