Just fdisk and reformat the hard drive and install the OS of your choice.

Do you want to put the xp on another system? If not, and you have the hard drive space, you can install a second os and run the computer with a dual boot setup.

This gives guidance on setting up a dual boot system with various flavors of windows:

you can also do this with linux.
