In fact you can use all editions save Standard and Enterprise Edition of
SQL Server 2000 on Windows XP. (I am not 100% sure about Workgroup Edition,
but it would not make sense if you could not.)

All editions but Enterprise. That is, even Standard Edition.

I'm assuming here that you're a developer writing code on test
databases on your workstation. In that case, you'll want to use
Developer Edition. It includes just about all of the features and
optimizations inherent in Enterprise Edition, but runs on Windows XP.
