Pretty sure I remember seeing that error when I didn't erase and format the partition I was going to install xp under. (I only formatted, you need to erase as well).

EDIT: Hmm, the instructions don't seem to reference erasing, so maybe I hadn't formatted at all. The relevant details are on page 13:
