    A bit more data will be needed. Are the two boxes separate? Same box but
    dual-booting? One of them a VM in another? Copy/Paste technically means
    using Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V (or equivalent) which doesn't usually work between
    different boxes unless one is a VM in the other and there is some VM magic
    going on to make it work. Copying files otherwise is trivial. SSH is
    always enabled on Linux so you can unblock the port (twenty-two) and then
    connect from the windows box with an SCP client (WinSCP for example) and
    copy data across in a drag-and-drop fashion. If it's a dual-booting box
    then Linux will let you read and optionally write to the windows partition
    so you can copy things that way.

    Good luck.

    You can do it from within openSUSE. Just find the files you want in your XP partition and copy and paste.
    If you are meaning copy files to Linux whilst running in XP, I'm fairly sure you can't do that.

    If you are having trouble reading your files in the XP partition from SUSE, let us know.

    Ext2 IFS For Windows

    It provides Windows NT4.0/2000/XP/2003/Vista/2008 with full access to Linux Ext2 volumes (read access and write access). This may be useful if you have installed both Windows and Linux as a dual boot environment on your computer.

    Linux Ext3 volumes can also be accessed. To do that, please read the FAQ section.

    i don't know how to copy and paste documents from XP professional to
    Linux across a network, or on the same machine unless one is running
    in a VM..

    the question reminds me of when a friend was asking questions about
    hotmail, and hotmail files and how they worked, and how/where he could
    learn more about them, and how they were constructed, and what
    programs could be use to make them, and how you got them from your own
    computer to a server on the internet, and etc etc etc...

    the more questions he asked the more confused i got...until finally i
    realized he was saying "hotmail" each time he should have said "HTML".

    see, he thought that hotmail.com was the first born child Mr. Gates,
    and from it came the format for ALL internet web sites, so it made
    sense that HoTMaiL be chosen as the file extension, and then they
    shortened it to both html and just htm..

    i explained that the internet was invented by the USA military, and
    hotmail was born on Linux...he thought i was just lying and 'pushing'
    Linux, again..

    That depends on what "shares" or servers there are on the Linux
    machine and matching clients and assignments on the XP machine. Linux
    can provide SMB shares, NFS shares, or FTP server. Any or all of them
    may be used.
