edit ... ok ok ... more detail
make a directory on the XP machine, and share it (eg backup)
make a user on the XP machine that can write files and so forth, not a poweruser or admin (eg billy password yllid)
make a directory on the linux box (eg in mnt called backup)
go onto the linux machine type
smbmount -o username=billy,password=yllid //ip.address.of.xp/backup /mnt/backup
from memory that's right ...
this requires that you have smbmount installed, which comes with ... dunno ... smbclient??
eitherway it will contain the man file which might sort out any syntax errors i've left there...
after that the file system is mounted and you can just copy to that dir
