Trying to do two things:

From my Xubuntu PC

1. Be able to send simple LAN messages to XP PCs on my home LAN

2. Be able to (forceably?) shutdown XP computers on my home LAN

I admin the LAN so can hopefully overcome password/permissions issues :)

Found some stuff. There is a hacked version of termsvr.dll that allows more than one login to an XP PC, thus allowing shutdown.exe to be run. Will give this a try. No joy yet on lan messaging across platforms
