Long Story: Can I get into a computer without physical access?

This is a long sad story, but rather than attempt to explain it all, here is
a short summary of what I desperately need:

Goal: I want to get some files off of computerX.

Challenge: I do not have physical access to computerX.

Info and Access I do have:

* computerX is WindowsXP (media edition, I believe)

* computerX is connected to a Linksys WRT150N

* remote administration is set, I can access the router pages remotely

* I can connect to the wireless network

* computerX has some sort of network file sharing enabled...I know this because
it has a shared folder on it's desktop that both it and computerY can access. computerY
is on the same network, and is WindowsXP Home. I do not have physical access
to computerY.

Is there anything I can do to somehow connect to computerX and get the
files? I'd prefer to use my Powerbook to connect, but I can use a PC if
necessary. I do not want computerX to show any super-obvious signs that this
is happening.

This is called hacking! Besides, it just plain rude to go into someone else's computer without permission. You'll probably have to come up with a better reason why you're trying to do this before anyone will actually help you.
