Help - I can't get xp to boot after installing ubuntu

I installed ubuntu 6.10 I got from a tutorial book - I thought it would be neat now my computer won't boot windows xp. I was told that since I had used partition magic that it had made my c: drive hidden and I needed to make it unhiden anyone know how to do this?

Please help.

Has the boot manager been configured? It sometimes doesn't automatically detect a Windows installation, but it's usually quite easy to add it manually.

'Fraid I know nothing about partition magic.
