I think the issue is that it would be better to install XP first, then Ubuntu.
With installing XP, delete all partitions first, then create one the size you want for XP and leave the rest alone.
Next install Ubuntu.
Here is one good guide: How to dual boot Windows XP and Linux (XP installed first) -- the step-by-step guide with screenshots
It says you can format the whole drive when installing XP and then resize the XP partition during Ubuntu installation, but I think my way would work too.
I will leave that choice to you, and maybe it's best just to follow the guide exactly though.
