XP uses the NTFS file system. you have to have a kernel that supports writing to NTFS. even with that there are severe limits to what you can do and also a chance of corrupting data.

Maybe the drive on the other system is not formatted NTFS, but rather is formatted FAT32

Usually the best solution to getting XP and Linux to share data with one another on the same machine is to have a small FAT32 partition that both can get to (I wouldn't install either into a FAT32, just along side one).

If you do want to attempt to write to an NTFS partition then you should look into captive-ntfs.

(P.S. the reason for this problem is that Microsoft has not publicly released the full specifications for NTFS. Incomplete specs leads to incomplete software.)
