I can using install Core 2 DVD get into linux rescue and have the prompt "sh-2.05b# " this is the limit of my knowledge re Linux, I need help with instructions and syntax to redo the booting instructions in Linux.

Your boot sector got clobbered when you ghosted you winXP. Boot FC2 and go into the rescue mode. Then cd to the boot/grub directory and run:
grub-install /dev/hda (Assuming the drive is hda)
Reboot the system and you should see the gurb screen again
