Will games designed for windows 95/98 and ME work on windows xp ?

An excellent question, although perhaps not detailed enough.
At this stage I would say:

Maybe, maybe not.

Provided that the XP installation correctly recognised your video and soundcard drivers, Win 98/ME games will run correctly. The older ones which opened a DOS window will probably not.
If you have problems with recent games, check the manufacturers web site for a compatibility patch - Diablo II for one needs this to work correctly.
