if you mean "run" your xp partition the same time as ubuntu, it cant be 
done.  per se.  you can use virtualbox and install xp while using ubuntu 
though, is that what you mean?

or if you want to access the xp partition from ubuntu, you should 
already be able to do that while in ubuntu.  click "places" and you 
should see your xp partition as "x"size filesystem" or something to that
