I don't think you can install Linux on a FAT32 partition. You'll need to use a different filesystem for your Linux partition. Of course, it would help if you told us exactly what went wrong when you tried to install.

I installed freespire 2.0.8 on a partition FAT32 of my internal hard disk,but i couldnt dual boot (only freespire booted and not XP).
I downloaded Air-Boot.XP works perfect, but it can't boot freespire!!!!
I think I screwed up!!!!

You're contradicting yourself. Do you have Freespire installed or not? If so, can you boot it or not? Please provide more information about the problem, including error messages if you see any.
