Screwed up Installation, need Help

Today I added a second hard drive and installed Fedora2. I didn't get the dual boot feature right and can't boot into windowsxp. My choicedsare fedora and other and other doesn't seem to work. Linux is installed on the second drive and windows on the first, but even when I try to boot off the installation for windows, it just goes to fedora (with cd set as the first boot device). I am planning to stop using windows eventually, but I don't want to lose what is on that drive and am not sure i can cut the cord this fast. Thanks for any help Nyah Levi

Are your jumper settings right? Just a ponder. Otherwise remove new drive and save data on cdrws
