Yes it can but XP will not be able to take significant advantage of the multi core processor.

Yes - if your computer has WinXP drivers.

Find all WinXP drivers for that computer.
Slipstream drivers into WinXP installation disc.
Install.

You're recommending that a user who doesn't even know whether XP can be run on an i5 CPU perform a slipstream? - priceless.

yes of course, there will be no issue with that. Although please note that using a 32 bit operating system (as 99% of windows XP editions are 32 bit) will only be able to use around 3GB of RAM, even if you have 4GB or more in the computer.

"technically" it is 4 but when it comes to the "real" amount accessible to any 32 bit OS is ~3.25GB.

It's actually variable. In IGP systems I've seen it as above 3.7GB.
