By what I read above you state 'I have installed 2 os in my laptop xp and linux'. Do you want to boot the XP? How do you boot the Linux with Grub/Lilo? Which distribution?
As others have stated you probably need to change the boot order in your BIOS. But if you are trying to re-install Win XP after the Linux install then you will have to jump through a lot of loops. It is a lot easier to install M$ XP first then install the Linux.
If it's a bootloader problem then you will need to use your Linux install cd to boot then modify/edit your bootloader configuration.
