This article from lifehacker explains how to remove unnecessary components of your WinXP installation cd.  This allows you to install WinXP on older hardware or virtual machines where resources are sometimes lacking.  They also mention an application to trim down existing installations of WinXP.  I’m trying it out on one of my existing virtual machines and will blog later on my findings.
