XP should be able to "see" the HDD. In this case the original HDD is IDE and may be Linux is running AHCI mode therefore the XP installation disc can not see the HDD.
My suggestion is: (a) Find a latest XP installation disc (such as XP-SP3) or (b) reinstall Linux, but make sure the bios is set for compatibility mode.

Are you using the CD drives in the MEU (base expansion unit) or trying via and external USB connected drive. I'm not sure the latter will work anyway - I believe later BIOS versions enabled it.

sorry to say so, but as such things happened repeatedly:
If you don't know anything on a model, can't you refrain from posting?
There ain't no use in posting wild assumptions.
Pls note: The n400c appeared in 2001 abd there were no AHCI controllers then.
