installation fedora windows xp

Hello frenz

I had got two windows xp installation one on my primary partion and other on one of the logical drives. When I installed Fedora in another primary partition of the same hard disk, there was a problem. The linux and 'windows xp installation on the primary partion' booted as before while the other windows xp which was on the logical drive displayed an error message when opter for booting which read

missing or corrupt file: hal.dll

I tried 2 to 3 times, without any success.When again I repaired the failed xp, the linux grub loader didnot show up.
Is it possible two have two windows xp and one linux installation(fedora) on the same hard disk. Please suggest.
