It is enabled by default and IMHO its not that great.

Right click on your connection and go to properties.
Advanced... Enable/disable firewall.

Not nearly as good as Zone Alarm. Its ok for filtering incoming traffic, but does not filter outgoing, which would be no good if you had a trojan or some other phone-home program doing funky stuff...

You can run both XP firewall and ZA just fine. See no problem there

XP firewall is already operating by default. Go to contol panel > network connections > right -click your internet connection > Advanced > check your firewall button.
