You can use the SuperGRUB LiveCD to restore the Windows bootloader (if needed), then install Windows XP to the partitions that Windows already resides on. Windows shouldn't touch the Linux partitions unless you direct it to do so.
Once done installing Windows, you can use SuperGRUB for restoring the GRUB bootloader. Quick and easy, it is.oz
