As for the tape drive, I see no reaosn why you can't as long as you have it set up correctly on the bus cable so that the computer reads it. If the BIOS reads it then XP will read it. Put it in and see if you can get it to be recognized by the BIOS and we can go from there.
Post back the details and/or problems that arise.

First thing I could say is get a second hard drive, they are very cheep and you will never fill $40 worth of hard drive.
If you want to stick with you had drive, I could help you remove a lot of stuff you don't need. Read a guide for getting rid of what you don't need in XP(not nameing or linking to it because it can cause too many problems). Tryed itand then restored with Norton Ghoast many times, because I what to test it to the limet result was an installation 400mb in size + page file. In the process I found out what was 100% safe to delete. I don't what to post here about what to remove because some one might follow it and go overboard with it. But if you (or any one else) whats to PM about it I will segest what to remove, what you do delete is up to you.

My first XP came with 128 MBytes, which at the time was their minimum required. It was terrrible. As soon as I started any other application, it would have to start using the disk drive for extra memory. YUK.
I wouldn't run XP with anything less than 512 MB.
My $.02 worth
