Better method:

1. Install XP as normal.
2. Install FC2 and set up grub as the bootloader, installed in your root
or boot partition rather than the MBR.
3. Use bootpart (http://www.winimage.com/bootpart.htm) to add an entry
to the XP boot loader menu to start grub from the appropriate partition.

I've never had a problem with this method.
