I recommend some research before you attempt to install Windows on your netbook.

First, make sure that the hardware is capable of running Windows. Many of the mini-notebooks or netbooks that do run Windows use a special version of XP that has been stripped down to be a better "fit" with the hardware in a netbook.

Next, make sure that you can get drivers and can install things like the storage driver while installing Windows. You will need to "slip-stream" the storage driver onto your USB copy of XP.
