Unhappy Windows XP problem - deleted FC 5 partition


Hi experts,
I had Windows XP and Fedora Core 5 on my dell inspiron 6000 laptop. I formatted and deleted the parition which housed FC5 using partition magic. After that I restarted the computer and getting the grub command prompt. How can I go to windows from here. What more can I do so that I can bypass the grub screen and get windows XP screen directly.
