Broken Sword PC - Windows XP

Under XP the game reports insufficient disk space when I have plenty.

The problem is you have too much space. The game mistakes free space over a certain size to be insufficient space. The trick is to fill up your drive until you only have about 6Gb left. Find some large files and make many copies of them in a temporary directory. When the game installs correctly you can delete the temporary file

It's an old game.......are you sure it's compatible with XP?

Other problems could be related to the fact that the installer is seeing more disc space available than it can register.If so it may well interpret such a value as "not enough" and fail to install (this happens with RAM too)
