    You need to install Windows XP like you would do on a normal PC. Put the Windows XP CD in your first CD rom drive and it should be picked up by the virtual machine.

    If you have XP pro or ultimate you could just install Windows XP mode is basically a pre setup Windows XP in a Virtual Machine.

    You don't sadly, it has the graphics power of a dead horse.

    I believe VM Ware is pretty good when it comes to graphics in virtual machines, however ive not used it myself.
