If you are going to install puppy to your hd you will need to partition your hd first. There is no need to install to hd, puppy is designed to run from memory and you can save your data and setup files within the windows xp partition. To get it started you will need to boot from cd everytime you restart your computer. If you want to install to hd here is a tutorial on the how to's.
