I have been able to give my wife's XP access to HER account on my BL2 and BL3 installations.
We have four computers hooked up to the ADSL modem, which allots 192.168.1.2 - 5 IP numbers to each machine.
I run my pure-ftpd server on either the BL2 or BL3 setup (they are on different partitions on the same machine) and my wife uses a dual-pane ftp client, and logs in to her own account from the XP. If I want to pass files to her, as root I put them into her /home/* directory. To get files from the XP to me, she puts them into her directory on my machine and I collect them from there. It was extremely easy to set up. But it has to be done from the XP. I cannot access her file system, so I have to run the server. I guess the same thing could be done with the httpd server and a browser.

Or a collection of cards.
