1.Make sure you have the xp drivers for your system for reinstallation, and backup files.

2.Place the xp disk in the optical drive
Restart computer
At prompt, hit any key to boot from disk
follow prompts to install xp
At hard drive partition screen, delete current Vista installation
Format drive, and install
Activate xp, and reinstall device drivers//software.

Did the manufacturer of your machine provide the means to downgrade, if not you may not be able to. There might not be the necessary drivers for XP on the machine and you would probably need to purchase a retail disk of XP to use if the manufacturer wont do the downgrade path.

Those are my thoughts the experts may know whether it would be possible or not :huh:
