What normally happens when you install Windows into a drive other than
C: is that it puts virtually everything where you asked it to, except
for its bootloader, which it puts on C:
So you've probably trashed its bootloader. You'll probably need to
create a (small) partition on the first drive that Windows can write to
(i.e. FAT or NTFS), make it bootable, and use the XP recovery console to
reinstall the bootloader into that partition. As for your FC3 install,
I'd re-do it once Windows is happy.
Wait for other suggestions too though; this isn't something I've
attempted and others may have better ideas.
