Do you want to Dual Boot? Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and XP

Boot the XP CD and attempt to install to partition desired, if it errors post back the exact wording of the error.

Acer Aspire one D257 is Netbook. No CD/DVD Drive.
First check for all the Win XP drivers for your hardware, on Acer website.

theog is right. You will probably have a hard time finding the drivers. If you find them, install them on a USB stick and get them from there during the XP installation.
