The choices will be to use the entire drive, or use the ntfs partition. Choose the partition and the new installation will overwrite the original installation.
You will also overwrite the mbr and destroy Grub when XP installs its bootloader. I am not terribly familiar with LMDE, but I think the procedure to reinstall Grub to the mbr is the same in LMDE or Ubuntu based Mint versions. Find it here
There are two methods detailed. One uses Boot Repair. I am not certain that Boot Repair can be installed in LMDE as installation involves adding a PPA to the sources.list and LMDE is not always PPA friendly.
The second procedure (Copy Live CD Files) should work.
