You can mount a windows share via command line or add an entry to your /etc/fstab

mount -t smbfs -o username=defaults,password=defaults //hostname/sharename /media/some_directory

via /etc/fstab
//hostname/sharename /mnt/xp smbfs username=defaults,password=defaults 0 0

replace hostname, sharename, some_directory with the actual name you have created.

Make sure the firewall if activated accepts smb traffic.

The only remote burning utility I know about is webcdwriter. It is a web browser application that in a nutshell allows you to upload the files to the linux pc and them burn them.
