Once Linux is installed and XP is wanted to replace it an original Windows operations disc is needed to install Windows XP again. I know for I had Linux before this past year and was tired of its free useless programs it offered

Well the aspire one being a mini doesn't have a cd drive, so you'll either have to have an external cd rom or a thumb drive made bootable with the xp installation files on it. then when the computer boots hit the f1 or f2 or whatever key it is (it should prompt you and tell you) and go into bios and change the boot device from internal hard drive to whatever device the xp installation is on, save changes and exit. this should allow you to install.
