Boot the machine with/to the XP CD. Format the hard disk (usually C:) to NTFS & install.

And make sure the boot order is set correct.

Linux isn't Windows, so of course it won't run Windows programs.

Boot off the XP disc, wipe out all current partitioning, create new partitions (at least 2), format as NTFS, & install XP. If you have a SATA HDD, there are other things you'll have to do to get it to work.
