I think it's easier if you use linux26 instead of expert26.

I think you must use Linux drivers from nVidia's web site. They are closed-source (but free), that's why they aren't included in Debian.

I run out of logic trying to think why it's so hard thing to do, unless it's security issue.
You must install XP first and then Linux because otherwise XP will destroy your Linux installation (XP always thinks it's the only OS on the hard disk... ).
Have a look at this tutorial: http://www.howtoforge.com/windows_linux_dual_boot
