Redline Racer breaks with DirectX8.1 or later installed, this version of DirectX comes as standard with XP. Therefore Redline Racer is pretty much stuffed when it comes to XP.

As for Command & Conquer - what's been posted in the link is the general way to try and get games working - compatiblity mode, patches and a spot of Googling. Some games are just designed in a generally awkward fashion that means there's no way to get them working under XP. Many Electronic Arts games dating before 2001 suffer from this problem.
