This might be a work around but it won't get you out of having to license XP or some other MS product. You can use SUN's VirtualBox as a VM running XP. Once you install the Guest additions, you can run your VM in seamless mode and copy and paste between Linux and XP without a problem.

Seamless mode is kind of hard to explain and I did write a short blog article about VirtualBox and seamless mode back in July. There's also a screen shot showing the integration of the two OS's.

It is sort of possible, but very unstable to run SAS in WINE. I haven't tried SAS 9.1, but I did get 8.2 running several years ago.
