Yes, unless you just want to suck static pages off the first, and
publish them through apache or something similar.. But then you would
be hard-pressed to call it a web-appligation ;)

Yes. Just make sure you have all the same Zope filesystem products on
both. Then you just have to copy you Data.fs across..

But wouldn't you rather have it the other way ? Develop on the
windows-box and use the linux one for a server ?
