Here are a few troubleshooting tips for you:

How are the two machines connected?  Interface to interface or switch or router?

Are the links (interfaces) up?  Check that the green lights close to the ethernet ports are constantly on.

Did you try using IP addresses as well?

How is the IP to domain name conversion taking place?  Is there a DNS?  Is Windows machine using this DNS on Linux?

Do you have a situation where a virtual host and a real host or two virtual hosts have the same ip-address?

@david, your domain is "linux.local", if you have this name in /etc/hostname then change it to something else

In your XP Network properties, tcp/ip, advanced, DNS tab: add "local" to the DNS suffix area.
