add a second network adapter to the windows xp box

connect the linux box either to the pc with crossover cable or with a hub or switch and patch cable.

on the Windows XP box enable internet connection sharing

set your linux box to use DHCP for ip addressing

your linux box will have internet access.

I would try using a ftp server on your linux box, then upping everything to it trough the ftp protocol

I do that even with my windows machines... I lub ftp :)

or you can use Samba and mount the network shares on the linux box. and just copy the file from the share to the location on the linux box, I do that and ftp between the boxes all the time.
