You can setup Samba on your linux system and create a shared directory on the linux sytem as well as IEEE-1394 networking.  Then just connect to this share from your WindowsXP system just as you would any other Windows network share.

For more specifics on the you can check out thwe Samba HowTo and/or search Goolge.

You need "IP over Firewire".
Which Linux distribution are you using? Your distribution may or may not have support for this. You can find out more about "IP over Firewire" on Linux on this page: http://www.s.netic.de/gfiala/IP_over_1394.html
As far as I know, WinXP does support this without any new software.
