Assuming you have a linux-type partition (such as ReiserFS, ext2/3, or
similar) for the linux install, you could create a mount-point for the
Windows partition and create a symbolic link from /usr/share/sword to
wherever you mount the C drive.

ln -s /mnt/windows/Program\ Files/Crosswire/blah /usr/share/sword

You'll probably have to tweak it a little, but that's the direction I
would head....
