The easiest way to share files between Mandrake and XP is to use the Samba software that comes with Mandrake. The easiest way to install is by using DrakeX, which might ask for the disk Samba is found on, but won't ask you to completely reinstall Mandrake. From there it's as easy as assigning passwords to the users...

You need to add a samba user and password. login as root
smbpasswd -a <username>

BTW you only need a FAT32 filesystem for sharing if dual booting on the same PC. It doesn't matter when connecting on a network.
