It does. If you boot from the XP install CD, you'll be given the option to Install or Repair. Press R, and you'll be taken to the XP recovery console. From there, select your Windows partition, type "fixmbr", push Y then reboot. This will restore the original Windows MBR. Then you can deal with the ex-Linux partition from within Windows, like drudge says.
