Try booting the DVD to do the install, rather than runnning it from XP.

If you use the Drive Tools to Delete, Create New and Format the partitions you won't get a windows.old folder with all of your XP files. But since you need to back up your files anyway, better to wipe the HD and create new partition(s) before formatting.

Since you installed XP, are you considering a dual boot? If so, follow this tutorial: Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and XP

Win7 will configure the Dual Boot menu when correctly installed last.
