Yes, Win XP doesn't support the DXVA2 interface that XBMC uses for the hardware acceleration.

I was almost sure I saw it on Drahma installaiton on XP - might it be that this not applies to Eden only ?

Afraid not, Windows XP has never supported DXVA2 and even when Dharma was released they mentioned that DXVA2 support was for Vista+ only (if you see the new's post at http://xbmc.org/theuni/2010/12/18/xbmc-10-0/ you'll see they say Vista and 7 only)

You can't unless you build your own XBMC and make some changes in the code.
