    the most simple way to do it would be to run a basic ftp server on the windows box.

    you could also install putty on windows and ssh on linux then use scp to transfer the files

    alternativly you can set up samba on linux to connect with the windows share.

    why are you using vnc in wine? tightvnc for linux can connect to winvnc without problem.

    take a look here it shows you how to manualy mount the share and how to auto mount the share at boot time which can be useful.
