What DVD do you have (OS X version)? Do you have an external DVD drive to install XP? Do you want to preserve OS X as you have it now? Or would you want a fresh install? Were you provided with a USB install USB flash drive? If not do you have one you can format (8gig min)? Do you have an external drive you can format?

Check out the links on that post to guides on installing OS X, and the dual boot guide. These questions will begin to make sense.
Essentially the process is this:
Wipe the drive.
Install OS X to an external drive (or use your back up)
Restore OS X to second partition.
The key thing is that XP likes being on the first partition, and OS X doesn't like being installed directly to a windows partition--but it can be "copied" to one
