I believe windows file sharing is done using SMB protocol. I think there's something called Samba for linux that will let them speak to a windows network.

There's a share folder option in "Settings" for Virtual PC 2007. Just go to the option for your VM and look under Settings to find Share Folder. Of course, this is a Windows XP question, not a Linux question.

He mentioned centos 4 so I thought I would chime in. I'm no expert to be sure.
