Everything you need in that link. Step-by-step instructions w/ screenshots.

Best way to install XP when coming off a Vista install is this method. You will in short create a new Windows XP install cd with the proper drivers inserted into the Windows install. You can place all necessary drivers, not only the SATA drivers. The software is called nLite. I have used it many times and its pretty easy to work with, and extremely helpful.
