Do you have any idea?

Check out PuTTY, it allows you to log in to a GNU/Linux box from "Winders". I think that's a close as you're going to get to "pop up xterm in my xp box".

To find PuTTY, Google it -- it's generally the top of the list.

you can install a X server (for example: Keax) on your XP. Then you can export your x apps from linux to windows.
