did u overwrite windows?
Before you do anything else I would check to see whether you installed over the top of windows. If you have, then forget about running it, you'll have to reinstall it.
To check if windows is there you can try running a live cd like Knoppix and looking for your windows partition, or you can try the kubuntu live cd and look there. I'm not familiar with the other tools kubuntu has to find a windows partition, however i know in ubuntu you can use GParted to look at what partitions you have. If the above methods don't help you, install gparted in a console by typing:
sudo apt-get install gparted
If windows is infact still there, it might not have been added to the menu for grub.
If this is the case type the following in a console to edit the menu of grub
sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst
title Microsoft Windows XP Professional root (hd0,0) savedefault makeactive chainloader +1
Anway, post back with what you find and I'll try and help you from there.

Try the above stuff and also:
sudo fdisk -l
If you've installed both OSs on the same drive, and Windows is not the first partition, you may be out of luck. Windows is very picky, and may not start unless it's the first drive and first partition.
