How do you define dangerous?

Linux and xp can live in different partitions on the same disk no problem. 512meg of ram is not enough for xp if you expect normal performance.

I prefer three partitions, one for each os and the 1st primary as the partition that has all of the boot files [system files in microsoft speak]

Though these days its common to virtualize the OS as a guest [means you run xp, then run the guest OS linux in a virtual machine] we have to come back to the fact you don't have enough memory to do virtualization.
