Basically, you need to put the Windows installation files on a bootable USB drive and install from the USB drive.

This is the guide I used, very good IMO: http://komku.blogspot.com/2008/11/install-windows-xp-using-usb-flash-disk.html

There are a couple of guides mentioned in the first post on this thread

Your best bet is to look at the user forums for your particular netbook. If you have a spare internal drive you can buy an adaptor use that to install directly from the DVD.

Be careful though. I bought an acer aspire one for my son and planned to remove the linux and replace with XP. I checked with acer before hand and received a response advising they would not offer support if I did this.
