I tried both XP bridging using the TAP way, which worked, but requires XP
doing the translation from 192.168.0.255 network to the actual network
you are on.
Later I tried bridging WinPCap style. Initially this didn't work for me
(and I noted this on the Wiki). However, since then I've changed the
setup such that both sides (windows and colinux) use the same mac address
-- as opposed to what is described in the wiki -- and this works fine.
However, I have no idea what problems can arise from using the same mac
address on two different IP-addresses.
Btw. I use static IP-addresses. I can immagine more problems when using
