Hello gobear and welcome to Seven Forums.
I'm not an expert in BSODs so until one of the Forum experts comes along there are a couple of things you can try that are similar to what's recommended for Windows 7 computers..
Often a Bad Pool Header BSOD can be traced back to a hard drive issue. Try running Check Disk (Chkdsk).
Windows XP chkdsk - The Details
Another possibility is damaged or corrupt system files. Try running a system file checker scan. Unfortunately, it may require that you have an original installation disk available so the scan can extract clean copies of damaged or corrupt files.
scannow sfc - LEARN how to use SFC.EXE (system file checker)
Another possible fix would be a Repair Install which also requires the installation disk.
Repair Windows XP by Performing a Repair Install (Part 1 of 2)
As I recall, XP wasn't as forgiving when it came to BSODs as Windows 7 is, and fixes were very limited. And none of these suggestions will cure an issue if it's hardware related (failing hard drive, failing RAM, failing motherboard. etc.)
