Can i compile apps for my Slack 10 machine from WINXP

I know i'm starting to get annoying, but hey... that's nothing new...

I have a PIII 1GHz with 256MB of ram running Slack 10 with kernel v 2.6.9.
As i am fairly new to linux and trying to learn i'm doing lots of comiling and stuff and it takes forever on that machine.

However i have a laptop with P4 2.6 Ghz and 1GB ram running WINXP. Is there anyway i can setup a compiler with appropriate libraries in XP to compile for my slack machine?

you can ssh or telnet into your slack machine from XP.

I guess snuffalufagus wants to compile using his biggest processor, sshing into the slack machine would compile stuff on that machine so it's not what he wants.
snuffalufagus, you could use a live cd or maybe cygwin which works under windows, but I guess you'll have some troubles to get the libraries needed to match your slack system.
