If you use Gnome, I think you can simply copy them into your home directory by
drag-and-drop. Or use the cp command as described in previous answers.
If you just want to access your windows files, you don't need the CD.
Do (as root):
mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /windows
(Assuming that the windows partition is the first partition on the first
harddisk and its type is vfat [the older windows file system].)
If it works, add a corresponding entry to /etc/fstab .
See man mount and man fstab .
