This will cause a lot of problems.
A lot of the new computers will not work with XP because there are no drivers for the hardware.
This is a common issue and I have not found any way to work around it.
If you are going to try any ways Make a recovery disc so you can reload Vista if the XP install fails.

You are probally seeing the set up that runs when you first use the computer.
You have never used this computer?
Then why not give Vista a chance?
Once the set up is finnished you can make recovery disc, your owners manual will tell you how.

Please run the set up and make a set of recovery disc before you try any thing.

My neighbour just bought a new Core 2 duo HP laptop with Vista Premium and it is a heap of crap, slower than molasses, brand new mind you from Jerry Harvey.
I made the obvious best suggestion, return the laptop immediately and demand XP, It's your right as a consumer, and considering that XP is now selling $50 more than Vista Home Premium OEM you might have to cough up the difference, not much to pay IMHO for a better O/S.
You can't change back to XP ? rubbish, give it here and Vista is history, there ain't no new Asus laptop that was described which won't run XP.
Take it back and demand XP.

However, XP will not load with most new computers that come preloaded with Vista.
IMO Vista is a better OS. Many people still prefere XP and that is their right.
Again, make a set of recovery disc so you are not with out a working computer.
