So, you have mandrake already installed and now you want to install Windows XP?

Is that the situation?

If so, install Windows XP normally into the 33 gb partition ... OR create a 25gb partition for Windows (format it ntfs) for the windows install and an 8gb partition (formated FAT32) to share files between linux and WinXP (like mp3 files, etc.).

If you haven't already done the install, then do the partitons with the mandrake CD ... and install XP first, then mandrake last.
