In your MBR, are both windows and Linux showing? What is the exact message you're getting?

Ouch sounds like file system curruption to me. Did you try to write to the ntfs partition? If you did good luck fixing it.

U can go to linux and fdisk , change the windows partions from hidden NTFS to NTFS type(17). Restart and boot to win2000. That should fix it.

can't you boot into recovery console from xp 2k disk, and run the "fixmbr" command.

that will kill linux tough I think, but get you into windows it might only be on the xp disk haven't used 2k for awhile sorry

more info on fixmbr here

Fixing the mbr has nothing to do with it. The files system needs to be changed from hidden ntfs to regular ntfs in linux it is number 17. That will take care of the problem.
