Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I don't know how your Linux will respond, but this notice is quite Windows-like...
Normally at boot-time you can select a 'repair' option and this should get windows up and running again.
Just make sure that you boot without any extra hardware which requires special drivers. Sometimes I even had to (just pull the plugs) get the printers off-system to get it working (I have been working with windows for work a lot... now switching more and more to something better like Linux, though customers...) and sometimes conflicting graphic-cards.
You might need the original XP-CD for this if there is no repair-partition on the HDD(0).
After that, you might have to repair you Linux again which is probably easier and faster.

NTLDR is a Windows file usually it is found on the root drive/partition i.e. "C:\". You need to copy it from your CD/DVD of Windows or from some other system and paste it there. It is hidden and as it is a System file you need to go to Windows Explorer or My Computer and then "C:\" drive. Tools -> Folders -> View -> Hide System Protected Files - Un-check it so that hidden system files are visible.
You seem to be from India. You can contact me for further help. I can guide you on it. Try booting your system (again or a couple of times) from the Windows CD/DVD and then select Repair option when it detects Windows already installed prompts for repairing it. It will copy the system files back there. Otherwise you need to re-install the boot loader (for Microsoft DOS) and then perform the above task.
