Sharing the bookmarks file using a symlink might not work (at least it didn't work in some mozilla versions), but you can use the following pref: user_pref("browser.bookmarks.file", "/Win/C/path/to/bookmarks.html");

But yes, while you probably can't share a whole profile between linux and windows mozillas, you can share many things... Personally I use the same bookmarks, addressbook, and mail/news data on both OSs, and it works well.
