To find files in a unix box use find example:
find /home/whoever -name 'h*' -print it will will display all file starting with 'h' in the specified directory.

copy it out into DOS/Windows format:
insert a floppy disk in unix box's floppy drive then type

mount -t vfat /mnt/floppy
cp yourfile /mnt/floppy
umount /mnt/floppy

You can also copy Unix files and save to DOS format using the <B>mcopy</B> command and other DOS utilities for UNIX.
