Normaly the easiest way (after cleaning up the mess you have :) to
copy the stuff would be "mc". Its located in utils and a very handy
tool immitating the Norton Commander.
Since you want to copy stuff to your MSDos Partition temporary, I
suggest to use tar. That way you won't lose the ownership and
permissions of your files.
May the Source be with you.
