You need SP1 or later (google 48 bit LBA).

Your options are:
1) Create a partition for the OS and another for data.
2) Install to a smaller partition and use (something like) partition magic to expand it (after installing the SP's).
3) Create an updates install CD (google Slipstream), then install.
4) Buy an updated copy of XP.
