    WinXP will see the harddrive just fine. Just put the CD in and restart the computer should tell you hit a key to boot off the cd. (or restart and put the cd in - however you wanna do it)

    win xp won't see the HD. You gotta get a msdos boot disk and type in fdisk /mbr and that will fix the not seeing the hard drive there is linux commands to do this but don't know any off the top of my head.
