Uncompressed, of course. But you may need some hardware help to play that, depending on how beefy your PC is. Something like a card from BlackMagic or AJA.
As Jim mentioned, you'd have to use an uncompressed codec--probably QuickTime Animation, as I'm not sure you can encode to an uncompressed AVI on the Mac.
You might also consider something like Sheer Video. It's a QuickTime codec for both Mac and PC. You'd have to purchase the Mac encoder component, and I think you could then get the free playback component on the PC--though you might actually have to buy the PC version, too. There's also Digital Anarchy's Microcosm. Both of these codecs are perceptually lossless, but offer far greater compression ratios (and manageability) than Animation. Not saying either is the best option, but they are options, nonetheless.
I just checked the version of FCP i will have to reencode my files on and it appears there is no PRORES codec listed in the sequence presets. Its version 5.1, any idea where i could find it or if i can just use one of the other sequence presets?
Can't you just recapture the original footage onto the PC and relink the files?
