It may be that you can free up additional disk space by archiving any old (and probably unneeded) documents, pictures, and zip files (from downloads) that installed from but forgot to delete.
I also assume you have used the disk cleanup utility provided by XP (Accessories/ System Tools/Disk Cleanup): in addition to the usual items on the first tab, you might consider under "More Options"removing all but the latest System Restore Point. This assumes you have System Restore turned on, and have not made any significant changes to your computer's configuration that might require using more than the last point.
Lastly the applications you choose to uninstall should be those (surprise) that you never use. Adobe Acrobat Reader, for example, if you never surf the net or need to view /download long documents. If you do not spend time communicating with your on-line friends, you might consider keeping only one Instant Messenger.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
