Does anyone know where I can download a free postscript viewer for Windows XP?

Ghostview runs on just about everything
Get ghostview ( the gui part ) from http://pages.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/gsview/get48.htm
You then need ghostscript ( the postscript engine) the above page describes how to get it.

"ghostview", "gv", and "gsview" are different postscript viewers:
http://pages.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/gv/index.htm

You want GSview, available at the link given by mgb_phys. You need Ghostscript to use GSview, as stated on that page.

http://pages.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/doc/AFPL/get853.htm
points to the GSview and the Ghostscript files you need for Windows.

(By the way, GSview can also read .pdf files.)

Tray "Rampant Logic Postscript Viewer", it's a good option.
