    You have installed Boot Loader of RHEL ( GRUB ) in the MBR of Internel Hard disk but its conf files are stored in Pen Drive.

    Boot up from Windows XP installation CD, select Repair and execute fixmbr command at repair prompt. It will remove GRUB and Windows XP will boot up fine on reboot.

    You have to re-install GRUB in Pen Drive. You can do that using RHEL Installation CD/DVD easily.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
