Not sure about XP, but with other versions of MS, you needed a third party defrager to be able to schdule (and have it run) a defrag, as you found out, it will launch the defrag, but won't run it

I don't have XP available to me right now, but on Windows 7 you can do it like this to save the report to C:\Temp\Report.txt
echo Defrag report on %computername% at %date% %time% >> c:\temp\Report.txt
defrag c: /a /v >> c:\Temp\Report.txt
