I usually don't (I triple-boot between FreeDOS, Haiku, and Windows on my  
main PC), but when I do transfer files between a DOS and non-DOS computer,  
I use one of the following:

1. Serial cable and Zmodem at 115200 bits per second. This is only good  
for small transfers though, usually I have to compress things first.

2. If the DOS computer (usually a laptop) booted DOS from a USB device,  
unplug it, connect it to the other computer, transfer files, and connect  
it to the DOS computer again to the same port. A DIR command should then  
show the changed directory. Sometimes a reboot is needed though.

3. Temporarily run mTCP FTPSERV on the DOS computer. Configure an FTP user  
so that it gives you access to all drives. Then use an FTP client on the  
other computer.
