Use the XP install CD and boot to recovery mode. Then run the fixmbr utility. You can also use a W98 emergency boot floppy and run:
fdisk \mbr

This will restore the XP bootloader.

You can boot up to the rescue mode on the Windows XP disk and run the 'FIXMBR' program.

You could of found the answer by using the search function of this website with the terms: fix XP mbr
