Can you ssh from both directions?  If you can do that then you should be
able to do Sftp or scp between them...see the man pages on those for
usage details.  If you cannot connect through ssh, there is probably
some sort of firewall up between them.  Do a netstat -lan and see if
port 22 is listening on both of them.  

I am not a Mandrake person so I will need a little help from the group
on more specifics for Mandrake.

    I'm running Mandrake 2006 on a 2.8MHz AMD Sempron and Mandrake 10.2

on an 800 MHz Athlon and I can't figure out how to get access to one 
from the other.
    The 2.8 successfully at least pings the 800.   The 2.8 rejects
/from/ the 800.  Both are set on High security.  I took the shorewall 
off the 800 (since I had no idea how to properly set it - but the 2.8 
was able to ping the 800 before I did that).
    I can just break down and buy an external floppy and use sneakernet

to get files from one to the other, but I have a linksys router 
connecting the two and should be able to use my home network.
    Any suggestions would be appreciated.
