If you have good access why not download gparted the distro and create
one small partition for Winblows XP say 4.1 gig just enough for a low
density DVD plus a small Win32 partition for file exchange between
systems.  Then use the rest of the disk as an extended partition with
logical within for Linux.

Gparted is just like PM in look and feel so even a windows person can
use it.  It is a live CD so your save and there is a commit / apply
button you must click to make changes so your safe.
