Nope It still goes to the windows loading screen and then restarts the computer. Do you think it might have something to do with my computer bios settings???...

that might be a problem. GRUB is configured properly and if Linux is plugged-in as Primary and Windows disk as Secondary, it should work. post the output of fdisk -l.

fdisk -l isn't giving me a printout...

you need root privileged to execute fdisk -l.
sudo fdisk -l

hmm... your XP file system is SFS (Secure FileSyStem) and GRUB doesn't support it yet. only GRUB Development Version 1.91 supports SFS and i wont suggest you to use that,
you can use Windows Boot Loader for dual boot OR any third party boot loader like Smart Boot Manager.

Okay, I couldnt find the boot.ini file that I needed to configure to use the windows boot loader... but I have a question...
I have my windows hd is set as the master and I have the linux hd as the slave, but I have my boot options set to load the slave hd first. Which this allows grub to run and it actually starts up windows with no problems, but it wont load ubuntu now. It begins to load and then it says:
/bin/sh: Can't access tty; job control turned off
