Edit: After re-reading your post I think I didn't understand correctly. Perhaps you simply meant installing XP after Mint, not it's location on the hard disk. Well either way I'll leave the info I put up just in case, and also mention that restoring Grub to the mbr is super easy if you have a copy of Super Grub Disk laying around.
