    you need to add windows to your grub.conf file, it is most likely in /boot/grub/grub.conf and add the folowing to it

    title=Windows XP
    rootnoverify (hd0,5)
    makeactive
    chainloader +1


    where (hd,0,5) corresponds to the partition windows is on, if you need more help, post the output of
    Code:
    fdisk
    p
