    XP cannot be installed through pen drive, since in XP the USB booting is blocked.

    But not in Linux.

    Not true.
    The best and the easiest option it to use WinSetupfromUSB. All you need to do is to specify the xp installation folder and the location of pendrive. The software takes care of the rest. You dont need to go through the elaborate procedure mentioned by Black Core.
    In fact you can install pretty much any OS from pen drive.
