Use F8 as you boot to get into the XP extended boot menu, then select "no auto-restart".
The PC should then stop at the BSOD and allow you to see the error message causing your problem.
Do a web search on the error code for an indication of where the problem lies.

That's a problem with your HDD file structure.
You can try running a chkdsk /r against the XP partition.
If you don't have an XP CD to boot into recovery console, you can get a bootable free partition manager which will enable you to try fixing the file structure.
If that doesn't get XP booting successfully, you're into a factory reset from the OEM recovery partition.
Before you do the latter, and preferably also before the former, you should rescue all of your user files like this
