ok, your question is not clear

"can i set up a ftp server on a computer connected to a network"

since this is the Linux/Net section, I hope you mean you
want to install an ftp server on linux, which distributions?

some excellent choises for FTP servers are ProFTPD
(http://www.proftpd.org) and NcFTP (http://www.ncftpd.com).

there are very straight forward to setup, lots of documentation on the websites.

"....with server with winxp?"

you lost me here, i have no idea what u are talking about.
