    Try using Samba. I heard that people were able to wirelessly share files between xp and ubuntu. I'm not sure about vista, but check it out.

    Yes, Samba on any Unix/Linux uses the same interface as Windows Print/File Sharing,
    eg ports 139/445

    The sole issue is to be sure that Vista is config'd to use LM V1 protocol

    see this topic

    and this samba example
