hi ..
just do the same thing when you install 7.
put your xp CD to CDROM, in your BIOS, set your booting preference to CDROM, and finally reboot your computer.
it will autoload your xp and press a key to install it.

hope it help.

Not like that. First go to your bios, set cd/dvd drive as first boot drive there. Then put your xp cd in the dvd drive. Now restart your computer. When it will say "press any button to boot from cd", press any keyboard button, and you will be in xp installation. Now, before installation, format tha drive where windows 7 is installed, and then install xp in that very drive (hope it is a primary one).

If there is any farther problem, let us know.

yup, it should be the sata driver problem.

anyway, you can get the driver for your belkin wireless adapter.
You just download it from belkin website.

The connection, signal strenght and data transmission speed have nothing to do with Windows 7.
The slow wifi connection issue should be other problem.

The problems might be:
The distance between your PC and wireless router is too far.
The internet service is down.
There is problem within the wireless router.

use partition wizard,

it will do a good clean format of your hard disk.
