Why not start with Debian's own Installation manual.

...as well as their own guide on booting using lilo or grub.

Another good article on dual booting is located here.

You should install XP first. Then install Debian. This will overwrite the Windows bootloader with GRUB/Lilo. This will allow you to dual-boot.

I think jarves has XP already installed and is booting Debian via a boot floppy disk now?

If this is the case, is grub or lilo installed as the bootloader?
