Linux does not use drive letters to identify partitions. Install xp as planned but do not create any partitions other than needed for that os. Mint should give you the option to install alongside Windows and will create it's own partitions. You can resize the partitions and create any others afterwards.
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.
