first thing you'll need is a genuine copy of windows xp to install from. you will also need to format the hard drive before you attempt to insert the xp disc otherwise it will usually fail. you can do this with the hirens boot disc by going into mini xp then format the c drive. replace the hirens disc with the xp disc and restart the computer and install xp.

Yeah this is most likely a driver problem. You see the drivers from windows xp wont work with windows vista. It is very likely that your camera was not made with vista drivers if it is more than a year old. Unfortunately without a windows vista drivers your camera wont work. so you have two options:
1- find out if the camera has a vista drivers and install them 2- buy a new camera ( i know its frustrating)
And if i may recommend the logitech cameras, they are sturdy and the mid range ones have great picture, and best of all there tech support is easy to find when you want a new driver.
First of all, find out if there's XP drivers available for your laptop. Many new ones don't have. Installing XP without working drivers becomes pointless, as your laptop won't run properly without them.
