Windows based PC, always on and available for my desktop, gaming, etc,

windows box.  I don't know of any firm reason why this wouldn't be

can substitute that w/ an ssh to my windows box.  I will also need to 
know the filesystem context which is expected so that I can make the 
appropriate mounts as well.  Anyone have those two answers?  Or is there
