Well if you have command line access on the Linux box, you could use wget –mirror to pull the files down.

To copy the whole site

wget –mirror -w 2 -p -P site data goes here ftp://user:[email protected] (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx = your real ip or domain)
Will copy all files from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx to the directory site_data_goes_here
If you just want the html files from a site, no ftp login needed all lower than public_html.. try
wget –mirror -w 1 -p –html-extension –convert-links -P site_data_goes_here http://www.your_domain.com
Or just install something like winscp on the windows box and transfer the files via ssh to the linux box. Other than that, use ftp.
