    I did a search and tried iTunnel and no luck. Can someone point me to a good read to help me understand?

    Um, if you want to ssh to the iPhone, google and download Putty. If you want to simply transfer a file as if it were FTP, then use WinSCP.

    Before i had a mac i relied heavily on these two programs.

    First you need to make sure you have downloaded openSSH from Cydia. After you have done that, the easiest way to SSH is to put your iphone on the same wireless network as your computer, find its IP address, and connect to your phone using winSCP.

    The username will be root and the password will be alpine (assuming you haven't changed them). The WiFi signal might shut off on you mid-session, so I make sure to open AIM to keep the signal alive while i SSH.

    Has noone here used DiskAid?

    Its free and IMO is the most simple way to add crap to your file system. Requires no SSH no nothing. I have no idea how it works, but it kicks ass.
