please explain installed xp on top of

Windows 2000 installs almost all files in c:\winnt, c:\program files and c:\documents and settings

Windows XP installs files to the same folders, with the exception that it usually uses c\windows

In the case of an upgrade, though, it will use c:\winnt

Since we do not know what you did when you installed, it is tough to suggest possibilities
