You could install Sygate HomeNetwork (or Office Network) software on the windows XP machine. On your Linux Box you set the WinXP box as gateway and DNS server (or use the DNS of your provider) and all should work automatically.

I do believe you'll have to use static IP adresses for your internal network because the DHCP service provided with the software can only be understood by Windows machines. They could have fixed that issue in the meanwhile.
