There are two issues with using an SSD with Windows XP.

1) Windows XP doesn't know how to properly align a partition for Advanced 4K hard drives and SSDs. I wrote a blog post about one way to properly align an SSD partition under XP... http://krick.livejournal.com/38063.html

2) Windows XP doesn't have automatic "TRIM" support. You can work around this by using an SSD brand which offers a standalone TRIM utility. I know that Intel does in their "SSD Toolbox" utility. It even allows you to set up an automated TRIM on a schedule like every Sunday or whatever. I'm not sure about other brands.
