In case at your school a Samba server is running (Samba is a  
protocol, I think, for sharing files between Linux and Windows), you  
could just connect to this server from you Mac, put your files there,  
then connect to it from your Windows school machine and use what's  

In this way you would only have to make sure, at the end of the day,  
that all the files modified on one machine have been copied on the  

The advantage of a Samba server is that, from Mac OS X, you can  
connect to it from the Finder using Go > Connect To Server (or Cmd-K)  
and typing an address of the form smb://[...] where [...] is the  
server IP. Once you're connected, the server appears just as another  
disk, where you could mirror your whole directory setup using drag- 

Only warning: Samba is more stringent on file names than the Finder,  
it will refuse to copy files containing ":" "/" and a few other  
characters. In that case, it will stop the whole directory transfer  
while giving you only a cryptic warning than some file couldn't be  
found (or copied, I'm not sure).
