Yes, you can connect from the Mathematica Front End running
on your PC to a remote kernel running on a Unix machine.

This is described in detail on pages 103-106 of the Mathematica
User's Guide for Microsoft Windows.

However, your remote kernel will only be able to access data 
files with ReadList if they are on a drive volume mounted on 
the Unix machine.

This is unlikely to be the casefoc your  ata on yourr PC. You
would therefore probably want to transfer your data files to 
the Unix machine first.

I hope this helps.
