Does XP has an administrative share $ like Windows 2000 ?

Yes, you can connect to \\xpPC\C$ or \\xpPC\admin$
You will need to validate your crendentials there or use guest account access.
Do you have a local account and password on the XP device?

Do you just need to Manage the computer, or do you need to be able to browse files and such? Because you Right Click My Computer > Manage >Action > Connect to other computer, if you just want to manage it. If you want to view files, you can connect to the box like so \\computername\c$ (C:\) or \\computername\Admin$ (C:\winnt\)

There ya go!
