"I suggest you see the following tutorial for an All in 1 USB bootable with many OSs and utilities,the tutorial is of 4 parts, you can use part 1 only of the tutorial to have a bootable USB flash drive with top free Os and utilities."

Does this allow you to have Windows XP bootable USB?

Well, if I may, the "right" tool would be a "NAS oriented OS".
Some possibly useful links here:

If you want an easy and quick way to truely have a bootable CD/USB and share files without limitations, this tutorial will walk you through what to do.

I use this in our company guest DMZ as a DHCP server and even not knowing Linux, it was still easy to setup.

Here's how to use it as a file server:

Good luck!
