    It would be easiest for you to just grab them from your Windows partition while booted into Ubuntu. Ubuntu has your NTFS read/write components installed by default. Look under places from your Ubuntu menu.

    Try installing the ntfs-3g packages from your Synaptic Package Manager - this will give you read/write capabilities in NTFS if for some reason you don't already have it.
