Is there a question in there somewhere?

Perhaps you could explain exactly what you did, what you are trying to do, and something about your drive geometry.

I'm not terribly clear on what you want to do here...

You would need to partition the drive into at least 3 partitions to dual boot between Ubuntu and XP (one for the root filesystem, one for swap, and the third for Windows), and then install accordingly. Windows first, then let Ubuntu setup the dual boot.
