Make all the partitions that contain data files that must be accessable in both systems any of the following:

FAT 12 (doubt it unless it is only <16 MB)
FAT 16 (still doubt it unless less than 300 MB)
FAT 32 (LINUX will most likely read this)
NTFS (linux should read it)

I think that the swap must be in EXT2 and that Redhat Boot might require EXT2.

I don't know much about XP, In the very rare case that it can use EXT2 use EXT2.  EXT2 is the most efficent file system currently avaible.
