    You will need cross over cable to do that. Did a search on google and found this.


    "Use the PearPC emulator(available from sourceforge.net) and then you will be able to run OSX emulated on your XP machine. This would then let you connect using appletalk.
    You should also be able to connect via appletalk with basilisk"

    Do a search on google and I am sure you will find lot of answers.

    Good Luck
