      Part of the learning process is learning how to find information. If you
      dig it out yourself, you'll remember it much better than if it was given to
      you on a silver plate.

      You need to do two things here. Firstly you need to mount your Windows
      partition read-write (if it's an NTFS partition then forget it, it can't be
      done safely). Secondly you need to copy your directory recursively.

      For the first operation, google will be able to help you after you've taken
      a look at the group's FAQ which can be found here:

      http://home.nyc.rr.com/computertaijutsu/linfaq.html

      For the second operation, you need the "cp" command. Look up its man page
      for the options you'll need (run "man cp", then hit "q" to quit the manual).
