W-XP? A search on Google yields several different possibilities for what that could mean.

I am going to make an educated guess that OP means: What operating system will best fit on the same disk with my existing Windows XP operating system?

Answer: Anything in the top ten at http://distrowatch.com

You will need to tell us the size of the hard disk and how much empty space you have.
