Windows XP will only install on to a separate and empty partition. If one doesn't exist, you have to create one first using Windows XP Setup:

I think he isn't getting the usb flash drive listed when he tries to create the flash drive.

Is the flash drive partitioned& formatted and assigned a letter by the current operating system?
