Upslug2 is a linux tool for flashing images onto an NSLU2.  It does not
have a windows port as far as I know.

There is a SerComm upgrade tool which does much the same thing and works
on Windows.

Stay well away from the Linksys EraseAll tool - if you use it with a
Debian image it will permanently brick your slug (unless you have JTAG
to recover it).  This is because the Debian NSLU2 images do not contain
RedBoot.  All other flashing techniques (including Upslug2 and the
SerComm tool) are careful not to touch your bootloader.

I would suggest you get a Debian LiveCD, and use it on that windowsXP
computer to run Debian so you can use Upslug2 to flash the NSLU2.
