This is pretty simple these days.  Install xp on the machine, then Fedora.  Following the instructions on the Fedora install disk to get a dual boot machine is relatively straightforward.  The biggest stumbling blocks are getting the partitioning and the bootloader correct.  The last couple of times that I've done this with Fedora it's pretty much taken care of it for me, but you might want to read up on these areas just so you understand what the Fedora disk is asking to do for you.
