Howdy:

No need to uninstall anything.. Just pop your XP cd into the system and re-boot.. XP is self-loading and you should see a screen saying "Boot from cd" press any key (or something like that)..

From there, just follow the prompts. Just make sure you use the option to delete all existing partitions first and then install XP..
