Is there any way to individually control each program's sound volume in Windows XP? It'd be better if it was built-in instead of an app, but whatever works.

Windows XP doesn't have this feature built-in (Vista does, however). You can use apps like

IndieVolume allows every application have separate volume level, independent from other applications volume level. For example, you are listening to the music, and suddenly some application LOUDLY shouts or dings. With IndieVolume you just configure shouting application to sound at different (lower) volume compared to the volume at which player application is playing music.

The only program I've seen that is capable of doing this on XP is IndieVolume, and unfortunately it's not free.
