You can!
I'd do a google search for "dual boot Ubuntu first" it is more complicated than having XP first then putting ubuntu on as XP will overwrite grub.

I agree, you're much better off backing up your important ubuntu files and installing xp first, then ubuntu.

There is of course the option of Virtual Box.


sudo apt-get install virtualbox-ose

Then install XP in that!
