How to copy files to an N900

Today was my first interaction with an N900, and it was not smooth at all. After several hours of messing around, it seems the 'proper' way to copy files from your desktop to the N900 is:
  • Connect N900 via USB, in 'mass storage' mode
  • Open the mounted drive in your desktop, and copy files
  • Unmount the drive
  • Disconnect the USB cable
  • If you have a terminal open in the N900, close it
  • Open a terminal in the N900 and go to ~/MyDocs. The files you transferred will be there.
Thanks go out to the people that helped me on IRC.
