XP installs exactly the same as PRO.Personally i would delete the partition, repartition , format the partition and then install XP. Make sure you have the right drivers for your hardware. Look in device manager for the software version numbers( or letters) and make sure you can find the software and download it to burn to a CD first.
Geesh tho, that is a pretty old computer. You may not be able to find the drivers for it.I just sold a Pentium 4 2.4 system for $100 to a young girl that can only make payments to me. Sure is a lot easier than what your trying to do.
Anyway, if you can get the drivers for your hardware then you go ahead and set your BIOS to boot from the CD first and slip a XP CD in the cdrom drive and restart the computer, and off you go.
