First check for all the Win XP drivers for your hardware.

If your Win XP CD, does not support your Sata Controller, you will need to load drivers to uses at F6.
Load Sata Controller drivers with a floppy disk is the best way.
SATA Drivers - Load in Windows XP Setup on Dual Boot
OR
SATA Drivers - Slipstream into Windows XP CD

Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and XP

Than install linux:

I would expect it only to be limited by hardware and Hdd space so whatever you like.

What if I bought 3/4 Hard Drives

Hard Drive 1 - Windows 7/Windows XP
Hard Drive 2 - Wubi Linux and Windows Vista
Hard Drive 3 - Hackintosh OS X (apparently it is legal to do this - Is the "hackintosh" illegal? - Yahoo! Answers) since I will buy a legit CD.
