The answer is yes, you can. The only catch is that Windows XP needs to be installed last, which means you will need to format your hard drive, install MS-DOS on its own partition, and then install Windows XP on its own partition. See the following Microsoft KB for more details (specifically the "To Create a Multiple-Boot System with Windows XP and MS-DOS, Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows Me" section):
How to create a multiple-boot system in Windows XP
