I assume you are acting in accordance with your local laws.

If you are running IIS on the win box, you can proxy it with mod_proxy
through your apache server.

It is usually distributed with the rest of Apache. For docs, see
Alternately, as I mentioned, you can export your Windows directory (I'm
not very familiar with XP; you'll have to figure that out for yourself),
mount it on your Apache box using Samba/smbmount. After the XP permissions
are correct, it will be something like
mount -o username=user,password=pass -t smb "//WILLEM-JAN/Documenten/Mijn Musziek" /path/to/mount/point
then create an alias in your Apache config, something like
Alias /music /path/to/mount/point
