Matthew, I defer to actual Git experts... but heres some sysadmin ideas:

Are you trying to keep one work area you can use for Windows and for Linux? Or 
are you trying to keep a remote repos
which you can get to from both?

If you create a third partition and put your Git workarea and repository there, 
then you could mount it from both
Windows and Linux. But files are going be changed when you jump back and forth. 
You could also switch to running Linux,
and put up a VM of Windows ( or vice versa) and have both running at once, 
keeping your remote repos on Linux and having
two work areas. Or, you could get that old Pentium4/ Pentium/ AMD dog out of 
the closet or for $25 at the thrift store,
and set up a Linux server with a remote repository. Or you could host your 
project at github.
