I think wallpaper files are supposed to be bitmaps anyway, but you could always click here and download Irfanview which allows you to set images as wallpaper as well as changing their properties.

Hope that helps.

If you save it in C/Windows/Web/Wallpaper this should do the trick as it is where your XP Wallpaper is saved.
