    Welcome to the Mac Forums.

    Reinstalling Snow Leopard will not overwrite your Windows XP partition provided you do not erase or partition the hard drive in the process.

    However, to be safe, you can make an image of your Windows XP partition with WinClone as a backup precaution. One caveat though... WinClone can sometimes be unstable and may not work right to restore and it's no longer being developed. However, lots of folks have used it successfully. The decision to use it is up to you.
