You shouldn't need to uninstall Win95 (and if it's the only OS installed there will be no option to do so) from the machine to upgrade to XP. Have you tried just putting the XP installation cd in the machine and letting it run?

This is the only way one can upgrade to XP from Windows 95 - boot off the XP Retail CD, follow the prompts, Setup will ask you for a CD belonging to a previous version of Windows, put your Win95 CD in, put the XP CD back in when asked, follow through. You cannot do this from within Windows 95 itself - it will claim that its unsupported. One has to boot off the CD. Official documentation will claim that this cannot be done with the Windows 95 CD-ROM, but it does work and works with any upgrade CD you use regardless of what Service Packs you have on it.
The OEM version of XP will insist, when you boot off the CD, on wiping the disk with no option to upgrade being given anywhere across the board. Once again, it cannot be done from within Windows 95 as it will claim that there's no upgrade path.
