    As far as I know, it's not possible to install XP in any USB-connected external device, be it on a MAC or a PC.
    If it's an eSATA device then it may be possible - but I would recommend against it.
    What exactly are you trying to achieve?
    You can always install XP using either BootCamp or Parallels (or any other virtual machine) - you will need a full licensed copy whichever method you use.
