Its easier if xp was on first as you will now have to repair the boot menu.

Everything you need to to do is in Option 2 here

An alternative is to run VirtualBox in W7 and install XP on a virtual PC.

This saves having to reboot to swap from W7 to XP and back again

It is fairly straight forward to setup and if you are where your username suggests I could attend and help if needed.
