There's a guide somewhere on here that worked for me. There isn't an EFI partition. Basically you have one partition for WinXP and one for OSX. Install OSX using one of the methods. Do a backup of it and then wipe the HDD using the WinXP setup. Install Windows XP on the first partition and restore the OSX on the 2nd. Then using the netbook install program, boot to the OSX partition and tell it to boot off of that with the chameleon bootloader. Obviously that's not a guide but there is one out there. I used it to get my dual boot working with XP and OSX.

networktec lol you made me register. spent the whole day doing this myself. Here's what i did:
Log in into windows 7
Run cmd as administrator
select disk 0 (it should be for you too)
select partition x <-- replace x with mac install partition
now restart and you should get to booting mac os x
try to get a bootloader, chameleon is what i have.
