    Explain....did you loose it or is it just not in the bootloader? and thus is not available for boot

    Thanks
    Could u be more precise please? Ur partition might not be lost, for example u could restore grub or lilo so that u could at new boot on XP (this is what u want to do I suppose) I'm quite astonished thus that mdk at installation doesnt detect and configure automatically ur windows partition.
    Before installing linux u've made a scandisk and a defrag right?If yes normally ur XP partition is not lost u can ensure about that by booting with a knoppix and checking ur disk
