    Hello and welcome,
    10GB hard drive is a little small for XP. I would go with a 40GB minimum. You can go to the Asus Support website and download the motherboard utilities after you install XP. It is possible that you might need to update the motherboards bios before you can install XP. You need to make sure that the motherboards bios are set to Failsafe Defaults and take out any network, sound or USB cards before you start installing XP. After the XP install completes, you can reinstall everything
