you would need to install rras (routing and remote access server) to turn the os into a router.. I think it cant be done on XP.. will check on that. (also u will need 2 or more nics)

With XP you can backup any systems on the network by installing MS networking and File and Print sharing.  I dont think you want to make the OS into a router, it does not work right to backup any resoorces on the LAN.  You want to use windows file and print servies to backup the other systems on the network, and this can be done equaly well in XP or 2003.
