please edit file
  # vi /etc/grub.conf
and make sure that your Windows section reads like

title Windows XP
rootnoverify (hd1,1)
chainloader +1

File it and reboot.

For your info:
The rootnoverify option tells GRUB to not try to verify the root of the OS.
This avoids load errors if the file system is not supported by GRUB.
