Right now Ubuntu 22.10 with ZFS filesystem.
XP machine works fairly easily if you use VMWare's free vmplayer on Windows. Note though only USB2 support, and probably IDE only - although there might be some SATA drivers. You'll need the VM's "paravirtualised video drivers" too if you want to do better than 640 X 480 VGA. The high res video screens weren't even in the realms of Science fiction back in those days.

XP with Lunar black theme and able to use networked drives :

If you do want an XP VM then get the "Service pack 3" or the "Unofficial service pack 4" - there's still quite a few hobbyists around who are running and even trying to maintain XP !!!

As others have said HYPER-V runs a load of VM's nicely - but I'd leave XP off its list. For Wifi on XP - either use a separate usb->wifi adapter and install the driver itself in the VM or use from Vmware "Bridged Networking" with the paravirtualised nic -- this emulates an ethernet nic regardless of the hardware and should work.

XP as a VM runs very fast on modern gear !!!.

I'm
trying to install Manjaro KDE on Hyper-V using a CD-ROM. Not going well - next, I will use VMware e.x.; I am
sure it will work great.

I'd have made a .ISO out of that thing first instead of trying to use a physical disc.
