dual boot issues with XP

ive recently installed slax 11 and now when i hit the dual boot screen, linux loads fine but when i try to boot to XP it says that it is missing 2 files (xmt2002.exe i think and the other is autochk.exe)
what could i do to fix this issue?

I searched google for xmnt2002.exe and it looks like this happens a lot when you foobar the partitions during resizing. Slackware would not dare touch a windows drive unless you make it. You will probably need to re-install lilo on the MBR, hopefully you will not need to reinstall windows, but if you do, make sure to install a real boot loader (such as lilo or grub) on top of it.

best regards,

also, posting more detailed information will help you get better answers.
