Install XP first. Then install linux. Choose to install lilo or grub on the mbr of the bootdrive making sure you give your windows installation a label in the bootloader options screen during install.

Installing windows first is the easiest way, then when you install linux it will make room for itself and not mess with your Windows installation. Have a look here for details.
