What I suggest is to install windows xp, wipe the hard drive( are you
installing to the satat drive? If so you need the driver for the sata
device.) and start all over again. After xp works setup the dual boot.

Having decided to stop my attempts to have a 2 hdd setup and decided on
dual booting instead I thought this would be dead easy. But is it ? Open
the CD drive, pop in my Widows XP disc and start the setup procedure.
Everything goes OK until we get to the bit that requires me to remove
the disc from the 'a' drive. I take out the CD, system closes down and
will not restart. Could it be that MBR causing problems again?

I have now reinstalled Ubuntu and still do not have a dual boot setup. I
shall be busy with Google this afternoon.
