As far as I know, logical partitions are unbootable. But I can imagine
that there are boot loaders that can do the magic. So you can't
install it on a primary partition, because you have reached the
maximum number for primary partitions.

If your Windows XP partition is not NTFS, then you should install
FreeDOS beside your XP. I'm using FreeDOS this way. It supports FAT32
pretty well, but there are some programs (for example: chkdsk,
undelete) that aren't yet support it.
