I don't know anything about CM on WinXP, maybe you can
install a specific program or an add-on to do this.
But in Scribus the logic way is to go into
'File-->Preferences' and scroll down the options
(General/Document/...) and see if the ColorManagement option
is present. You'll probably have to activate it, but that is
of no use unless you have some decent ICC-profiles on your
system. You can google for "icc adobe profiles" or similar
to get some generic ones.

CM is not specificially a Scribus thing, CM should be done
system wide; the obvious first device to control with CM is
the monitor (and you may have some surprises!).

But CM is a sort of black magick until one understands what
it does for the OS, the profiles are device-dependent and
the devices (monitor/printer/etc...) are not stable over
time; meaning that for accurate CM you have to make your own
profiles and/or get some from your printshops.

There are many pages on CM on the web. It's really like
plunging into a deep pool...

Hope I'm not telling too much crap here... :-/
