Looks like the other guys have given you the best options.
XP mode if you're version of Windows 7 supports it, is a free
download from Microsoft with a fairly straight forward install.
One of the things it does is let you boot up a virtual machine that
runs XP inside a window on your Windows 7 desktop.
VMWare is also a good choice for some people, that's what I use.
To answer your question though, no, its not as simple as going
into the control panel and uninstalling one and installing the other.
If you were choosing to just install XP instead of 7, not a dual boot,
you would boot the computer from the XP CD, wipe out Windows 7
completely, install XP and then install all the hardware drivers manually.
Before you attempt that, go to their website and see if drivers are available.
I just did a quick search on the Gateway ZX series and didn't see anything
available for Windows XP, or any 32 bit OS for that matter.
If you try XP mode and it doesn't work out for you, no harm no foul.
You haven't hurt anything by installing it.
