Lubuntu should work quite well on your machine.  Lubuntu has very
good hardware detection, generally requires less disk space than
Windows and uses less in resources (CPU and memory).

I did something similar with my old Thinkpad T41 (Win7 and
Lubuntu 16.04 LTS).  The simplest way to do this is to let the
Lubuntu installer will allow you to resize the WinXP partition,
install Lubuntu in two extended partitions (/ [root] and swap).
Grub (boot manager) installs by default and is updated with any
kernel updates.

In preparation, you should optimize and back up the WinXP
partition, then settle on a size that will allow for reasonable
use.  Also, a hardware inventory would be useful in the rare
event that the installer can't sort out the hardware.

Good hunting.
