Windows XP uses NTFS 5.1, Windows 2000 used NTFS 5.0. Although if you want 5.0 for XP, you can probably pop in a Win2k disk and format the drive before installing XP. As with most software advancements, newer versions are usually better, so you will want to stick with what's provided.

There’s no such thing as “NTFS 5”. Windows 2000 uses NTFS 3.0, Windows XP and higher uses NTFS 3.1. They’re both backward and forward compatible in every regard except EFS (encryption).
