We're not going to email you solutions. This is a community site, where knowledge is shared...we're not your personal one-on-one email tech support site.
And your question is hard to follow and read. If you want to install XP, put the CD in, boot from it, format your drive, and follow the instructions. You can boot from your ubuntu CD, run fdisk, and remove the partitions on the drive, and install what you want. If you want to dual-boot XP and Ubuntu, you need XP installed and working first.
And please spell out your words, and write clearly.
