Yep, the best program to use is Partition Magic, this way you dont have to delete your xp..And then you can just dual boot.

Yeah, it would be fine, I would like to do this with Linux, haven't got round to it yet. How big is your HDD, maybe we can give you some guidelines on how to partition it (size wise)..

Nope, you cant use the trial, but there are other way to get it , not so sure about the other questions, but if I had to take a guess, I would say yes..
