Would appreciate any suggestions as to what software might be useful
for encrypting a USB flash drive.

Ideally, the software should not require any program installed on the
system drive (WinXP in this case), such that I can use it on other
computers (WinXP) without having to install the program.

Ironkey

Not cheap, but not insanely pricey.

Try freeware Truecrypt.
It has a traveler mode that does not require installation on host
machine although you will need Administrator privilege.

You could try FreeOTFE and FreeOTFE Explorer, which doens't need
administrator privileges
