Can you install SAP on XP?

I am new to SAP. Is it possible to install SAP on Windows XP? Also, with mini SAP software is it possible for me to practice SAP Basis?

Yes and yes. You have to do some tweaking to install SAP on Windows XP Professional. But, I've done it for testing purposes only. SAP does not support XP as an operating system for any of their software solutions. On the other hand, mini SAP (Web AS) definitely works on XP and it can help you practice SAP Basis and ABAP programming. You can get mini SAP bundled with a couple of books: ABAP Objects and Programming with the Web Application Server (see SAP-Press.com).
