you can do it. but thing that will happen is you will lose your grub, since the windows boot manager will overwrite it. What you would need to do is after installing winxp use the rescue disc and go to rescue mode and recover your grub, reinstall it.
there might be other ways!
yes you can dual boot xp with kubuntu. you will need to configure your bootloader (grub) to recognize xp also. i think i see what you meant by add. well you add it in the grub.conf and so grub can give you a nice menu to choose from as to what you want to boot.
have you got any space left in your hdd? well this is a good time to check it out. run 'fdisk -l' and compare its output to those of 'df -h' or 'mount' commands to see what partitons are used by whom. if you have a free partition left then its easy for you to go along with your plans, else you may need to resize. and
