    you should install WIndows XP before Linux Installation. i suggest to wipr harddisk, install WIndows and leave Free/Unpartitioned space for Linux. Installer will create and format partition itself.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Drean Linux Problem

    Hi.
    Ame thing happened to me..... Here's how i got out of it.
    Download and burn partedmagic. You'll see the link on distro watch. Use TESTDISK... Let it hunt for the partitions that were lost. It will then re-write your MBR for you and you're back in business. (well i was anyway)..... Even supergrub did not help me but this did..
    I think you'll be fine ...

    Typo above. i meant same thing happened to me...
    Anyway here''s the link for you

    PartedMagic - Main - Parted Magic

    fairly small, only about 37mb in all...

    Once you've done shut down your system, then cold boot it back up....

    Good luck
