Your motherboard could be reading the INTERNAL thermal diode in modern Athlon XP cores (T-bred and Barton) in which case the temperature is alright. If the board is reading the temperature in the socket, then the temp is too high.

If you are stable in windows, try running a better monitor like Motherboard Monitor 5... http://mbm.livewiredev.com/ and see if the temperatures still read high.
