Check the wiki for articles on cross compiling (as that is the term for what you are asking). The forum also has a lot of posts on this.
It's often easier to have a virtual machine with linux on it, and compile there, because you'll have to test the software anyway...

...or installing a native linux in addition to Windows. Linux reads and writes your Windows partitions, so it is sufficient to have your program source data at one place where you compile it both for Linux and Windows. You should also think about installing both a 32 bit and a 64 bit variant of Linux.
