Yes, you can Dual-Boot your system. Install Windows first, will make things easier.

Good luck,

You can install them like you want, but if you install XP first - ubuntu will rewrite bootloader including itself and XP, but if you install XP first, you'll loose GRUB and have to boot from ubuntu livecd and setup grub again.
So you'd better install ubuntu after windows, but if you have already installed ubuntu and want to install XP - ou don't need to have ubuntu reinstalled, there is nothing difficult - in fixing grub after windows installation
