How to transfer files between them?

There are many different techniques. SAMBA, NFS, FTP, even Konqueror-based FTP so it copies just like you are copying from one directory to another. I like SSH for command line file copying.

Make sure that the SSH daemon is running on the other machine, and from the machine you are logged into type, "scp file username@othermachine:/home/username/"

You can also use ssh with gFTP, which gives you the familiar two-paned interface for copying files back and forth between machines. Despite the name, which suggest that gFTP is for FTP connections only, it also does SSH.

Some users might find it easier than using scp on the command line, at least under certain circumstances.
