Just mount your Windows XP drive using the ntfs-3g driver.

Assuming /dev/sda1 is your WinXP (NTFS) Partition the command is:

mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt -o umask=0,nls=utf8

Execute this command as root. After this command your WinXP Drive should
be accessible in /mnt (maybe just root can access it).

Maybe: (needs tomcat) or if you don't need it in
an multiuser environment: (can
handle MS Project files, but is still beta).
