you can reinstall XP and it'll erase grub but you can reinstall it using any linux live cd.

If I understand correctly, XP will always put it's bootloader in when you install it. you can then install grub from a live CD as the previous poster mentioned.
This page may be helpful, it's written with an ubuntu disk in mind but it should work roughly the same for whatever distro you use. Hope this helps!
