Do you boot from a floppy, 
or did you install XP on another partition than the first, 
or is there some way to overwrite the mbr when XP is on the first partition
? (lilo won't load because it doesn't like NTFS)
(I might try grub anyway)

	Grub works incredibly well for multi-boot setups, including
	chainloading and similar nifty things. I've sucesfully had rhl73,
	rhl80, freebsd and windows XP cohabitting under grub without pain.
