One of the least painful ways to transfer files between computers is
to run a light weight webserver like webfs (no messing with samba)
and use a vanilla web browser to download them.
On Linux, webfs is a small web server that requires no config files
and can be entirely command line driven.
On Windows, I use the hfs web server, www.rejetto.com/hfs/. No
install necessary, just run hfs.exe. Open port 8080 or other on
your Windows firewall and any non-administrator user can then
use hfs to transfer files.
