I use a third party boot manager called BootItNG to boot both Windows
and [KU]buntu, and have had no problems.  

Once you get back into XP, one of the first things you should do is
create a boot disk.  This article will show you how:


I'd also recommend downloading GRUB for DOS.  Their extensive readme
will show you how to build a boot disk that is non-system specific -
meaning it "finds" bootable OSes - both Windows and Linux - and offers
to boot them.
