Perhaps try deleting whatever partitions are on the disk at the moment with Partition Editor on the Ubuntu Live CD, then making a ntfs partition in the space unallocated by the deletion. Then try installing XP again. For some reason the presence of ext3 partitions seems to bamboozle XP installations, apparently.

As I said, run Partition Editor from the live CD and you will see the partitions on your hard disk. Click in each one and then "Delete". Now click in the space showing as unallocated and click "New" Now right click in the new partition and Format as ntfs. It's not difficult.

As you told to change file system to NTFS no option apear for NTFS.
My Laptop is Dell Latitude d400 using external Cd rom (ASUS). I change the (FAT16)file system from ubuntu Cd and trying to reinstall the XP but again it got stuck on windows setup (setup is loading files (windows executive))
