I successfully accomplished this install on my 10v some time ago. my current system is actually a tripple boot, SL 10.6.4/Win7/Ubuntu.
The XP/SL dual boot is a bit counter intuitive. Here's an overview:
1. Backup (make a disk image of) your OSX install to an external drive either using Disk Utility, or Carbon Copy or another such Utility (I used Disk Utility)
2. Reformat/repartition your drive using MBR partition scheme.
3. Install XP onto first partition.
4. Restore OSX to the second partition
a. run NBI to install Chameleon Boot loader
That's the basic info you need.
Here's a more detailed guide: OS X SL Install on Dell 10V with Existing XP
only difference is that instead of doing a fresh install of OSX, you are restoring it from your saved image instead.
What system do you have? what is your install media (external dvd/ usb) ?
