Two options come to mind:

    1.  If the computer is fairly new there is usually an option in the
bios to set boot order for hard drives and removable media.  Setting
that option to hdd1 (or the equivilant) should boot the XP drive.

    2.  A slightly more elegant solution is to do 
            sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst 
then add something like this to the bottom of that file.

title Windows XP professional
	map (hd0) (hd1)
	map (hd1) (hd0)
	rootnoverify (hd1,0)
	chainloader +1
