yes, not a problem at all.. very standard setup really. just install XP first, and, of course, remember to leave some space for gentoo (preferably as close to the start of the drive as you are comfortable with.... giving it the 195th gig onwards probably won't make it too happy...

also the gentoo installation docs have some good multiboot tips on it, in addition to the hundreds of dual boot posts on this site.
