40 Gb is not very large. I wouldn't suggest that you have XP with too
much less than 20 Gb but the installer can indeed shrink the NTFS
partition on the fly during installation and use the space made
available for Linux.

I would suggest that you use the Windows tools to 'defragment' the XP
installation first unless that is a fairly clean, unused XP
installation.
