I have very limited experience doing this. I used the crossover to connect
two Xp boxes and it went very well. I do not see why it couldn not be done
with Red Hat and XP. You would have to make sure that Sambe was
running/enabled on the Linux side. Use static addressing and It really should
work. THe FAT32 drive is a must for shuttling data back and forth.
