dual boot linux and xp? or just linux alone?

I know there are many threads about dual boot linux windows. I did a search but couldn't find for this specific question.
I'm planning to use Puppy Linux as my main OS on my P4 machine. I asked a friend of mine who knows Linux very well.
I asked should I install Puppy alone on my P4 machine? He told me that I should dual boot with XP because sometimes Linux alone does not compatible with graphic card, sound card, Ethernet adapter, etc...
If dual boot Linux with Windows. They both can share the same drivers. Is it true?
