Of course you can connect 2 computers via a serial cable using
ppp, but, in this instance, why?  With such a small distance 
between the 2 computers, use network cards, ethernet, and a
5-port hub.

You'll get _much_ faster speed also.

After you get some experience with Linux, you will want to 
move the internet connection to your linux box, and have it
serve the WinXP box.
