Well, it definitely CAN be done. :) When I boot into XP I use a remote X
connection to my other PC to get a proper desktop to work with, and I
use pulse to get my sound across. Doing it through an SSH tunnel is
going to complicate it slightly but it should still be very doable.

Here's a brief writeup I did a few months ago on connecting pulse on an
XP box to a Linux box running ESD.


The only difference with connecting pulse-to-pulse instead of
pulse-to-esd is that instead of using ESPEAKER you'll want to use
PULSE_SERVER. Hope that helps.
