    First if you could explain in detail who your home network is setup and the start looking at a linux app called "Samba" which you setup on your linux box and can then share folders/files between computer with or without passwords etc...

    As a work around you can create (if you don't have one already) a fat32 partion on either machine. Then from windows map to it if its on linux or from linux mount it if its on the win box via the network connection.
