Need to acces contents of other drives on network via DSL desktop.

I have a PC that I will be installing DSL on and I want it to be able to read all the other drives in my home network.

Can some one advise on how I can set up the machine so that it is able to see the other computers on the network and able to access the relevant partitions, including WinXP files.

I just want to copy the winXP files onto a drive in the DSL machine for backup purposes. I could do this via the XP Backup utulity but I would rather try and do it with Linux.

Thanks for any help on this.
