Live cd fix for buggy install.

After my 2 original posts:

I gave up on the install process and used the Live cd of ubuntu. Now I can at least access my computer and open my office documents, but I need to finish the install. Does anyone know how to fix the grub bootloader and error 25 message I get when I try to boot from the harddrive and tell me how to show the computer where to look?

Also, I was poking around in the gpartition thingy and I did NOT see a windows or ntfs partition...does this mean my xp install is wiped out?

Finally, my internet connection doesn't work either.

Please help.

Same as in MasterC's response: don't create pointers to
your own questions.
