At first glance, the game does not appear to run under Windows XP. However, this can be rectified by configuring Windows to run the game in Windows 2000 compatibility mode. Note that 1.0.0 BofF-CD won't work without an XP patch, while 1.0.1 BofF-CD will work in compatibility mode.
Surprisingly, the game runs well on Vista; however, freezing may occur later in the game which is solved by clicking the Windows button twice.
A more recent 1.0.2 XP compatibility patch is available here
