there is no uninstall.. just install over it. what do you expect to happen in an uninstall? i hope you don't think that you'll somehow recover lost data...

well of course is it, you've formatted reused the same bit of disk space. police forensic labs could possibly help...

ok, maybe you shoudl explain in bette rdetail what you actually mean then. you say that by uninstalling feodra somehow XP will start working again?? you've not even said in what way it's not working... if you mean there's no boot option to it, and other than that everythign is perfectly fine, then just edit /boot/grub/grub.conf to configure the entires. if you wish to remove grub, then just use a windows boot disk and run "fdisk /MBR"
