Samba is correct. You can use usb/firewire if you've got
usb-usb/firewire-firewire networking compiled into your kernel. How you
do this, I don't know - i've never done usb/firewire networking.

With samba, you have two options. You can avoid using the samba server
on the ibook and get smbclient and friends, and do an smbmount
//Winmachine/DiskYouWantToMount /mnt/windisk. Something to that effect,
where the DiskYouWantToMount is the share exported by XP. Make sure this
is writeable by everyone, and then simply copy.

Grub first, then ideals.
