It can be done but it's a lot more effort and it's far quicker to just make a USB pen stick bootable as it's generic.

Where did the XP on the USB drive come from?
Do you have a Registration number?
Is this a name brand system?

However there are a number of other tools that need to be installed in almost every PC that I reinstall windows on (Office Enterprise, Visual Studio 2008 with MSDN Subscription, MS Office Project, SQL Server Developer etc). Our IT security policy prohibits me from putting installation media on networked location. So this means that most part of the day I am running around with 4 or 5 different installation medias.
So now my question; if it is possible to make XP installation media on a 500GB usb Harddisk then i can also put installations for the other softwares on it and just do it all from one disk.
Now answers to your questions:
Why not use the XP installation cd? - most of the PCs don't have optical drives
Where did the XP on the USB drive come from? - detailed description provided above; just to make my life easier. (I already have a success with installing XP from USB thumbdrive.
Do you have a Registration number? - Yes, my organization is MS Gold partner
Is this a name brand system? - No
