Good question. I haven't gotten that far yet. I read in the books that their file system is somewhat different from other people. 

But *surely* they can read an old PC-DOS file. Everybody can do that. I'm trying to get XFCE going, but I'll stick a FAT-16 thumb drive in it in the morning and see what happens.
