Samba will be the "easiest" way to share files... once it's set up. If
you're not sharing files on an on-going basis, it may be easier to install
an FTP server (which may already be there) on your Linux box, and use any
FTP client to connect to it.
The adress you'll give your XP machine's browser will correspond to your
Linux box's IP address. http://www.xxx.yyy.zzz/ With DHCP, this address
can change regularly. You will probably want to assign the IP address of
the Linux box statically. You could also, optionally, set up DNS, so that
you can use some 'nice' name (fedora.foobar) instead of the IP address.
I have no idea what font capabilities Fedora comes with by default.
I hope this information helps as a starting point.
