Why? I dual-boot XP and FC1 just fine... My suggestion would be, if you can, wipe everything and install XP first but do your partitioning yourself. If I remember rightly, FC1 needed at least 5GB so I gave it like 10GB and left the rest to XP. After XP's set-up and such, then install Linux on the partition you made. If I remember correctly my install asked which OS you want to boot to more
automatically (I think the default is to wait 5 seconds to choose with GRUB, but mine waits like 100 so I have to choose), so choose Linux there. Finish setting it up and you should be good to go.
