Do you mean there is some kind of hardware attached to the linux box ? In that 
case I'm not sure if you will be happy with the scripts being run from a 
remote environment, be it windows or linux. It MIGHT also fail because the 
scripts try to access the local hardware. If so, consider using some emulator 
like wine or vmware. I don't know if you really succeed this way but it may 
be worth trying.

Good luck,
