Let me state this, I had purchased a linksys router about 8-10 years ago, when windows vista was not even a thought, and it worked fine, Your router will work just fine with XP. I will provide you with some steps to follow as well as set-up links.
Upgrade the Linksys router to the latest firmware @ Firmware download
1. Once you upgrade to the latest firmware or if there is no firmware upgrade, you need to perform a factory reset by holding in the reset button for 30 seconds located on back of the router, you will notice the routers lights blinking. Then wait about 2-3 minutes while the router syncs back up.
Note: The factory reset will erase all previous settings, so you may want to write down your settings as you will have to enter the settings back into the router.
You do not need the CD to install the router, You can set it up manually.
1. Just open up Internet Explorer and type 192.168.1.1
2. A Linksys sign-in box will open
3. User Name = (leave this blank)
Password = admin
4. Click OK
You should be at a Linksys set-up page, at this point I do not know if you have Cable or DSL connection so I will provide both set-up links below.

Hope this helps,
