Umm, this probably isn't what you want to hear, but I think you may have an 80mbyte /boot where your xp used to be. Something looks very wrong. You appear to be accessing the grub files (the splash img, the kernel, the stage files) on hda. Try fdisk -l in linux to display existing partions on all hd's.

That should work if xp isn't toast and the grub install went correctly.
IIRC, Windows doesn't like to boot unless it finds the MBR on the first sector of the first drive. Your grub may be setup so that windows doesn't see things this way which makes it not boot. Try the following for WinXP
