I use HTC Wildfire (Android) with CentOS 6 via USB. It recognizes it 
like any other USB Flash drive.

Also, I connect via Home wireless and use FSync app to synchronize 
specific folders from FTP server on CentOS and Android.

But there is also Total Commander for Android and it's plugins for 
Windows File sharing (Samba on CentOS 6), FTP and WebDAV. Total 
Commander is two-panel file manager that I find is THE BEST file manager 
on ANY platform, EVER.
