It only took THREE more friggin' times, but i finally got WinXP installed. I went the windows update route, and it went on without a hitch. Two small side notes, however. If you don't have the correct video drivers, windows will thieve resources from other important functions such as PCI-PCI Bridges, basically putting a big fat hex on your install. Also, when installing WinXP on a serial drive, do NOT create partitions! Windows, for some unknown reason, hates partitioned SATA drives.
And no, i will not fix your computer.
